TIPPERARY BARRACKS.

HC Deb 01 June 1893 vol 12 c1759 1759
 
MR. FIELD
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether it is the intention of the Government to supply the vacancy now existing in the barracks at Tipperary, which has been empty almost since the removal of the 1st Battalion of the East Surrey to Malta last February; and whether it is intended to have a regiment sent early in June, as the traders are anxious to have the military in the place?
 *MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
It is proposed to move the 1st Battalion Seaforth Highlanders from Fermoy to Tipperary in the summer. There are three companies of Infantry at Tipperary —namely, one Company of the 1st Battalion Manchester Regiment, and two of the 1st Battalion Seaforth Highlanders.

APPLICATION FOR RELEASE (SERGEANT H. A. BLACKMORE, MANCHESTER REGIMENT).

HC Deb 10 August 1920 vol 133 cc238-9W 238W

 Lieut.-Colonel HURST
asked the Secretary of State for War upon what grounds Sergeant H. A. Blackmore, 5th (R) Battalion Manchester Regiment, lecturer in chemistry and dyes, the Laboratory, Thornhill, Aldershot, is retained in the service; and when will he be demobilised?
 
 Mr. CHURCHILL
Educational personnel serving on a temporary basis are not retained in the service against their will; their demobilisation can be carried out forthwith if they so desire. I am not aware of the grounds on which Sergeant Blackmore is being retained, but enquiries are being made and I will inform the hon. and gallant Member of the result.

Volunteer Reduction.

HC Deb 11 February 1908 vol 183 cc1523-4 1523

 SIR FRANCIS POWELL (Wigan)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if it be intended to reduce the number of men serving in the First Volunteer Battalion, Manchester Regiment, of which the headquarters are in Wigan.

 MR. A. WILLIAMSON (Elgin and Nairn)
I beg also to ask the Secretary of State for War if the Territorial Army scheme involved a reduction in the number of Volunteers in the counties of Moray and Nairn to about one-half; if he has received memorials from the county council of Morayshire and from the town councils of Elgin and Forres petitioning against the proposed reduction; and if, in view of any such petitions and of the strong feeling which has been aroused, and having in view the record and services of the 3rd Volunteer Battalion Seaforth Highlanders, he can now see his way to sanction the allocation of a battalion of the Territorial Army to the counties named.

 MR. HALDANE
The quota of troops which each county is to be asked to raise has not yet been finally settled. A scheme based partly upon population and partly upon units already existing has already been communicated to County Associations. They have been asked to consider this scheme and confer with the General Officers Commanding of their respective commands upon it. Until the reports of these conferences and the recommendations made at them have been considered by the Army Council and received its approval, it is impossible to say how far existing units will be affected by the new scheme, and I cannot therefore, reply to the specific points the hon. Gentleman raises. As regards the Question of the hon. Member for Elgin and Nairn, memorials have been received from the county council of Elgin and from the Elgin Town Council.
 
 MR. A. WILLIAMSON
In the event of its being impossible to allocate a whole battalion to the county, will the right hon. Gentleman consider the possibility of allocating to it some other branch of the service so that the services of a large number of Volunteers may not be lost to the county?

 SIR FRANCIS POWELL
When will the right hon. Gentleman be able to answer my Question?

 MR. HALDANE
When we have got the Report of the General Officer Commanding, which I hope will be very shortly, the Army Council will be able to consider the matter. We are doing our best to avail ourselves of the services of Volunteers, but, of course, military circumstances may preclude our taking advantage of the offer

 Mr. CHURCHILL
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer which I gave on Tuesday last to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull.

Dunham Park, Altrincham

HC Deb 06 December 1948 vol 459 c12W 12W

 81. Mr. Erroll
asked the Secretary of State for War when, in view of the return of the Manchester Regiment to Ashton-under-Lyne, the military camp at Dunham Park, Altrincham, will be made available to the people of Altrincham for the provision of urgently-needed housing accommodation.
 Mr. M. Stewart
This camp may be required until 1952. I am, however, aware of the present needs of the local authorities and proposals to meet these needs are under urgent consideration.

MOTOR LORRIES, MONS.

HC Deb 03 June 1919 vol 116 cc1805-6 1805

 Sir WILLIAM DAVISON
asked the Secretary for War whether some thousands of motor lorries have been parked in the open at Mons for many months; whether such lorries have seriously deteriorated by reason of exposure to the weather as well as theft of certain of their parts; and what steps he proposes to take to prevent further deterioration of national property?
 Mr. CHURCHILL
I understand that lorries have been parked in the open throughout the War, and I have no reason to think that serious deterioration results at Mons, any more than at other reception parks. I have no knowledge of the theft of parts to which my hon. Friend refers, but if he can give me further particulars I will have inquiry made.

SOLDIERS' GRAVES (INSCRIPTIONS).

HC Deb 03 June 1919 vol 116 c1806 1806

 Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary of State for War if the next-of-kin of soldiers buried in France and Flanders will be given the option of choosing a few words for the inscription on the monument marking their graves when new monuments are being set up?
 Mr. CHURCHILL
Yes, Sir, the Imperial War Graves Commission have arranged for inscriptions chosen by the next-of-kin to be engraved on the headstones at a cost of about 3½d. a letter, whenever desired.
 Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY
Will this be made public, as there are a lot of inquiries in the country?
 Mr. CHURCHILL
It will be made public by an answer to a question in this House.

SECOND-LIEUTENANT J. R. FOX (DEATH).

HC Deb 02 June 1919 vol 116 c1704W 1704W

 Major NALL
asked the Under-Secretary of State to the Air Ministry why Second-Lieutenant J. B. Fox, Royal Air Force, has not been officially reported killed, although ample evidence is available that he died from wounds on]9th August, 1918, at Ingweiler, and was buried in the Ingweiler Cemetery?
 Major-General SEELY
The question doubtless refers to Second-Lieutenant J. R. Fox, 10th Manchester Regiment, and Royal Air Force, who was reported missing on 16th August, 1918. This officer's death has been accepted for official purposes as having occurred on or since 16.8.18, and a letter to that effect. was sent to the next of kin on 30.4.19.
