§ 23. Mr. RONALD McNEILL
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if the recent forest fire in the neighbourhood of the military camp at Forest Row started simultaneously at four different points to windward of the camp and would probably have destroyed the camp but for an opportune change of wind; if any investigation has been made with a view to determining whether it was the work of incendiaries; and whether any aliens or recently naturalised persons reside in or are known to frequent the neighbourhood?
§ Mr. TENNANT
Nothing is known at the War Office of the alleged fire. It is understood that certain aliens and recently naturalised persons do reside in the neighbourhood.
