§ Earl WINTERTON
asked the Secretary of State for War if his attention has been called to the fact that the claim made by the trustees of the late Mrs. Louisa Gorringe for compensation in respect of the occupation by the War Department of part of Holmbush Farm, near Kingston-by-Sea, Sussex, has not yet been settled by the War Claims Commission; and what is the reason for the delay?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
The claim in question is a heavy one, relatively, to the value of the property, and needs careful examination. I regret that the miscarriage of a document has also caused some delay. The case will be dealt with with all possible expedition.
