HC Deb 03 April 1905 vol 144 cc122-3
MR. MAJENDIE (Portsmouth)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War it he will explain why every facility is given to distinguished foreigners to view the Rock of Gibraltar and its fortifications, while British naval officers are only allowed the same facilities as those extended to ordinary strangers.


The responsibility for ensuring the secrecy of works of defence is vested in the General Officer Commanding on the spot. I do not propose in any way to question the discretion of the General Officer Commanding the fortress of Gibraltar.
