§ 23. Mr. RONALD McNEILL
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether a lawn meet of the Quorn foxhounds was held in the grounds of Donington Park, and the hounds were brought close to the wire entanglements in order that the German officers might have a better view of the pack; and, if so, whether he will give directions to prevent the recurrence of such proceedings?
§ Mr. TENNANT
I understand that the Quorn Hounds met, as one of their ordinary fixtures, in the park adjacent to Donington Hall on the 23rd ultimo, but did not enter the grounds. No objection was raised to their hunting in the park, which is not in view from the Hall.
§ Mr. MCNEILL
Does the right hon. Gentleman say that no sort of interchange of courtesies between the prisoners and the members of the hunt occurred?
