HC Deb 27 August 1914 vol 66 c160
74. Mr. CREAN

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether the military authorities in Cork Harbour have compulsorily closed the houses at Crosshaven and the surrounding watering-places usually occupied by visitors during the summer months; and whether, in view of the fact that the owners of these cottages are mostly poor people mainly depending on the rent received from these holdings for a living, compensation will be given to them for the losses sustained?


I am not aware of the facts stated in the question, but if and when they are reported to the War Office they will be given consideration.
