HC Deb 05 August 1924 vol 176 cc2725-6
20. Viscount CURZON

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can now state whether the War Office intends to accept the judgment of Mr. Justice Sankey and evacuate the Tanks Corps from Lulworth?


I would refer the Noble Lord to the reply which I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for West Woolwich.

Viscount CURZON

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the answer he gave yesterday was not correct. He said the school will not interfere with the amenities of the coast. Has he been able to satisfy himself with regard to the tanks firing?


I did not say they did not interfere with the amenities of the coast. I said so far as the Cove itself was concerned—cove not coast.


Is it not a fact that the retention of this camp for tank purposes is a very great nuisance to fishermen, and also a danger; and is it not a fact that an expert from the War Office itself has declared that the camp is entirely unsuitable for the purpose?
