§ MR. HERON
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to commence the building of the new Barracks for Tipperary during the present year; and whether he has considered the wealth and population of the district, and intends to build the Barracks of sufficient size and accommodation to be the head quarters of a regiment?
§ MR. CARDWELL
The provision to be made at Tipperary will not be founded upon consideration of the wealth and population of the district, but upon the requirements of the service. It is not intended to provide for the accommodation of the head quarters of a regiment, but only for six officers, nine sergeants, and 154 rank and file.
