§ 39. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware of the widespread resentment caused by a proposal to use a sandpit adjoining the 13th century parish church at Aylesford, Kent, as an explosives area; and whether, as there are several pits outside the village equally suitable for the purpose, he will intervene so as to change the location of this particular military exercise.
§ Mr. Shinwell
A proposal to establish a training area in this neighbourhood was considered, but has been abandoned.
