HC Deb 15 February 1938 vol 331 c1696
29. Mr. Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can give any information in connection with three fires in the miliary building at Woolwich; and what was the amount of damage and the cause of the fires?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

Three fires occurred between 29th and 31st January last. The first was at the offices of the Depot Brigade, Royal Artillery, the second at the Royal Engineers' Yard, Connaught Barracks, and the third at the Medical Inspection Room, the estimated damage being £400, £1,450, and £45, respectively. The circumstances have been investigated, but it has not been possible to establish definitely their causes.

Mr. Thorne

Do I understand that they are laid down in a special report?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

I do not think there is a special report.
