§ Mr. C. ROBERTS
asked the Undersecretary of State for War if he is aware that between fifty and sixty trees belonging to the Lincoln Corporation have been, felled by the military authorities on Salsey Green Farm, Hanslope, Bucks, without any notice to, or authority from, the Corporation or their tenant; whether he will state by whose authority these trees were felled; and why notice was not given to the Corporation or their tenant?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
As the Corporation have already been informed, the omission to inform them was due to a local misunderstanding, for which regret has been expressed. I am informed that it was absolutely necessary for the safe use of the landing ground that the trees should be felled.
