§ MR. ARTHUR MOORE
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, In how many instances the Royal Irish Constabulary are quartered in iron huts; what 285 the dimensions of those huts are; how many men are lodged in them; and, whether living in such quarters is consistent with the health of the men?
§ MR. J. LOWTHER
Members of the Royal Irish Constabulary are quartered in iron huts in six instances. The huts are 12 feet square and 7¼ feet high. There are six men lodged in one; in three of them there are five men, in one four men, and in one two men. No complaints have been received that the men residing in the huts have suffered in health. These huts are only put into requisition in cases of pressing necessity, and where no other accommodation is obtainable.
