§ Lieut. - Commander Joynson - Hicks
asked the Secretary of State for War if he will give the designation and address of the military authority to which the local authorities of West Sussex should apply for military assistance in the clearance of defences and barbed wire no longer required.
§ Mr. Lawson
Application for military assistance for this purpose should be made to:The Commander, H.Q. Sussex and Surrey Sub-District, The Welkin, Lind-field, Hayward's Health, Sussex. I should, however, emphasis that, although such assistance may be given if troops happen to be available in the areas concerned, the liability of the War Department is limited to the payment of compensation under the Compensation (Defence) Act, 1939.
