HC Deb 07 December 1943 vol 395 c790W
Sir W. Wayland

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will give instructions to all officers commanding exercises in agricultural training areas to fill in all dug trenches when exercises are at an end as this is carried out by many units, but not by all, open trenches being dangerous to cattle, sheep and individuals?

Sir J. Grigg

Instructions on these lines are already in force and when it is brought to the notice of the military authorities that they have been disobeyed, disciplinary action is taken against the individuals responsible.
