§ Mr. COURTHOPE
asked what were the receipts from and expenditure upon the toll-gates on the military roads in the neighbourhood of Rye during the last financial year, and what was the cost of upkeep of these roads?
§ Mr. HALDANE
The two toll-gates on the east and west sides of Rye are let to a tenant on an annual tenancy at a total rent of £210 per annum. The tenant carries out all repairs, and there is therefore no expenditure on the gates. The cost of upkeep of the Royal Military road from Winchelsea to Appledore was £222 during the last financial year.
