HC Deb 03 June 1881 vol 262 c14

asked the Secretary of State for War, If the statement in the "Times" of June 2nd is correct, that Instructions hare been given from the War Office to have the Military Barracks at New Ross, now occupied by a Company of 20th Hussars, fitted with portholes and looped for musketry; and, if so, upon what grounds such instructions were issued?


Sir, a small sum of money has been authorized to be spent for the security of certain buildings in Ireland, of which the barrack at New Ross is one; but we have no details of the works which have been executed.
