asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been drawn to the inquest at Salisbury on 7th January, upon the body of a cyclist, killed by an Army lorry which overtook an omnibus at a corner; whether he is aware that a police-sergeant gave evidence that he was refused admittance to the military camp and the coroner protested strongly against the refusal of the Army authorities to co-operate with himself; and whether the soldier who caused the death is still employed as a lorry driver?
