asked the Secretary for War, if he is aware that it is proposed to establish a knacker's yard or slaughter house for worn out and diseased animals, and a factory for the conversion of fish and meat offal from the borough of Leicester and the vicinity, contiguous to the barracks at Glen Parva, in the county of Leicester, and within 150 yards of the married quarters at that station; whether he is aware that a protest has been made by the residents in the neighbourhood including the medical officer of the barracks, to the district council on the grounds of injury to health; and if he will take steps to prevent what may be injurious to a number of His Majesty's troops quartered in that district?

Colonel SEELY

Nothing is known of this matter at the War Office. Inquiries are being made.
