§ MR. ASHLEY
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether his legal advisers have as yet approved of the 742 draft agreement prepared on behalf of the Court of Verderers for the joint regulation by them and by the War Office of the proposed military manœuvres in the New Forest; and, if so, what is the position under that agreement of the Court of Verderers with reference to any claim for damage made by a commoner.
§ MR. HALDANE
A draft agreement has been prepared by the Treasury solicitor, and has been forwarded by the War Office to the Court of Verderers for their consideration. I am not, therefore at present able to reply to the last part of the Question.
