38. Surgeon Lieut.-Commander Bennett
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how soon authority will be given for the restoration of the public hard at Warsash, Hampshire.
§ Mr. W. Edwards
The Admiralty's responsibility in this matter is limited to the payment under Section 2 (1, b) of the Compensation (Defence) Act, 1939, of compensation for damage to the property whilst it was held on requisition, and this has been settled recently. The work of restoring the hard is a matter for the urban district council.
