HC Deb 19 February 1914 vol 58 cc1146-7W

asked the Secretary of State for War if there is any probability of further delay in the ratification of the agreement arrived at between the War Office and the local authority for the purchase by the Sandgate Urban Council of the piece of land adjoining the grounds of the Shorncliffe Military Hospital and the main road; and whether he will take the necessary steps to hasten, the delivery of the agreement for signature so that the necessary planting can be proceeded with before the weather becomes unsuitable for the purpose?

Colonel SEELY

The actual terms of the agreement for the tenancy of this piece of ground have not yet been settled, but all possible steps will be taken to make it available for the use of the Sandgate Urban Council at an early date.
