HC Deb 10 April 1866 vol 182 cc972-3

said, in the absence of his hon. Friend (Sir Robert Clifton), he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, When the Government intend to build barracks at Nottingham on the land which was purchased from the Duke of Newcastle in 1862 for the sum of £5,200?


Sir, the building of those barracks was suspended for want of funds pending the completion of others of considerably more importance. No money has been taken for their construction this year in the Estimates, and it is impossible for we to say at what time it will be in the power of the Secretary of State to take money for the purpose. The project of building the barracks has not, at the same time, been abandoned.
