HC Deb 11 August 1896 vol 44 c493
MR. W. H. MYERS (Winchester)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, seeing that the negotiations for the purchase of additional land by the War Office are practically complete, he is now able to state when the rebuilding of the Winchester Barracks will be commenced?


I regret to say that the rebuilding of Winchester Barracks, for which full provision is made in the Military Works Bill, will be delayed owing to the information conveyed to the Government that the Bill would be strongly opposed if pressed in the present Session. The preparation of plans, however, is being proceeded with, and it is hoped the Bill will be passed before the 31st March next.
