HC Deb 15 August 1889 vol 339 cc1320-1

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the 4th Hussars are about to be quartered in Royal Barracks, Dublin; and, whether the sanitary condition of the barrack is now considered satisfactory?

* THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. E. STANHOPE, Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

There has been no question recently as to the healthiness of the cavalry barrack in the Royal Barracks. The other portions, Royal and Palatine Square, have been temporarily evacuated. The depôt of the 4th Hussars will be quartered in the cavalry barrack; and probably the regiment itself will be moved in at the close of the drill season, about the end of September.
