MR. JUSTIN M'CARTHY
asked the Secretary of State for War, When the Government intended to quarter cavalry 282 again in the barracks of Longford; and, when it is proposed to rebuild the wing of the barracks lately burnt down, and to repair the existing buildings?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
The distribution of the troops in Ireland rests entirely with the General Officer Commanding in Ireland. He reports that, under present circumstances, he has no occasion for Cavalry at Longford. The existing buildings will be put in proper repair; but it is not considered necessary to rebuild the wing which was burnt down.
