HC Deb 08 July 1902 vol 110 c1073
Colonel BROOKFIELD (Sussex, Rye)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in connection with the recent disturbances at Sandhurst, several old soldiers employed as servants at the Royal Military College have been summarily dismissed; and if so, whether they have been punished in this way for any proved offence, after investigation and trial, or whether this course has been taken on general grounds of expediency.

(Answer.) Three servants on orderly duty at the time of the fires have been discharged because they were held not to have exercised sufficient vigilance.—(War Office.)
