HC Deb 05 August 1907 vol 179 cc1516-7
MR. NUSSEY (Pontefract)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether the War Office contemplate transferring the Military Pay Department from Pontefract to York; if he is aware that the town of Pontefract has made special efforts to afford facilities and conveniences for the depot and its requirements, and that the transference will be a severe loss to the town; and if he will give due weight to these considerations before authorising such transfer.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) I am not at present in a position to give any information on this Question, but I can assure the hon. Member that the considerations which he suggests will not be overlooked.
