§ MR. CHARLES HOBHOUSE (Bristol, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the attention of the War Office has been directed to the insanitary condition of the village of Ludgershall, close to which large barracks are to be erected, and in which the War Office owns much property; if so, what steps it is proposed to take to remedy the present state of affairs.
§ MR. BRODRICK
The War Department property does not include the village of Ludgershall, and the new barracks will be two miles from the village and separated from it by a range of hills. The question of the improvement of Ludgershall has, however, not been lost sight of, and is under consideration.
§ MR. CHARLES HOBHOUSE
Is it not the fact that the War Office is the lord of the manor of this village?
