HC Deb 16 April 1875 vol 223 cc1112-3

asked the Secretary of State for War, When it is likely the building of the new Barracks at Galway will be commenced, which, in reply to a similar Question put on the 24th March 1874, he stated would be commenced about the 1st June, 1874?


, in reply, said, that tenders were received for these barracks last July, instead of June, as he expected, but being excessively high as compared with careful estimates were declined. It was then determined to reconsider the plans with a view to economy. New plans had been prepared and were now with the proper authorities in Ireland for report as to their suiting the site which was available for the barracks. He could not, therefore, name a time for the commencement of the building.
