§ MR. CLAUDE HAY
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty how many fires have occurred by which Government property has been destroyed during the last two years; and how many of those fires occurred during the night, and the highest amount of loss occasioned by any one fire.
§ MR. LAMBERT
Eleven fires have occurred during the last two years, and, as far as is known, five have occurred at night. The highest amount of loss occasioned by any one fire is, approximately, £5,869.
