HC Deb 02 December 1920 vol 135 c1453W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether the Queen Alexandra Convalescent Centre at Saltash is a military establishment; if not, will he explain why the disappearance of any implement of domestic utility is investigated by a court of inquiry similar to and set up under rules determined by military law; and will he say what is the constitution of these courts?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The superintendent of the institution is responsible for the safe custody of Government property at the centre, and cases of loss are investigated by a committee of officials of the institution appointed by the superintendent.
