HC Deb 11 December 1912 vol 45 cc453-4
50. Mr. WHELER

asked whether the question as to the compensation to be awarded to those residents of Sheerness whose property is damaged by the concussion from the firing of the guns of the Ravelin battery has been decided?

Colonel SEELY

The question is under consideration.


Has not the question been under consideration for a very long time, and could not the battery be moved to some more practicable place?

Colonel SEELY

I do not think that would be a wise course to pursue. I know the matter has been under consideration for some time, but it is a very difficult point.
