To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he has yet received the Report called for from the General Officer Commander-in-Chief upon the planning of the recent Volunteer camps at West Tarring, Worthing; and, if so, what action, if any, he proposes to take. (Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) It is untrue that a mistake was made in siting the camp at West Tarring. The camp was planned from an Ordnance map corrected up to date in 1905, and checked on the ground by officers on the Brigadiers' staff. The camping ground was quite clear of any houses except one newly erected villa to the occupants of which no possible inconvenience could have been caused. No complaints of any sort were received.
