HC Deb 03 April 1862 vol 166 c445

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, Why the ground at the corner of Great Ship Street and Upper Stephen Street, in the city of Dublin, which the War Office purchased several years ago is permitted to remain for so long a time in its present ruinous and dilapidated state; if it be still in contemplation of the War Office to build an addition to the Ship Street Barracks on this ground; and, if so, when the works will be commenced?


said, that steps in the matter would be taken as soon as there were any funds applicable to the purpose, and as soon as more urgent works were completed. From information he had received, he was inclined to believe the ground in question was not in a more unsightly state than Downing Street went was and had been for some years.
