HC Deb 17 February 1880 vol 250 cc810-1

asked the Secretary of State for War, How often the barracks (known as Her Majesty's Cavalry Barracks) at Leeds have been "condemned," with the date or dates of any "condemnation," and by whom made; whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to take any and, if so, what remedial measures in the matter; and, when any remedy, if in contemplation, will be applied?


in reply, said, that the barracks had, technically speaking, never been "condemned." They had, however, frequently been adversely reported on, and he had no hesitation in saying that they were, in many respects, in a bad state. He proposed to take a certain amount in the Estimates for this year for the purpose of remedying some of the principal defects, but he was afraid the state of things complained of would not be altogether removed.
