asked the Secretary of State for War if he has considered the petition of the inhabitants of Heath Common. Wakefield, as to the bad state of the footpaths, etc., near to the houses of these people caused by the troops stationed at Heath, near Wakefield; and what is he prepared to do about it, in view of the danger to these pedestrians and children.
