HC Deb 25 February 1896 vol 37 c1074
DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether the complaints made about the want of proper married quarters in Buttevant Barracks will be attended to; and, if so, what is intended to be done; and, whether the families of soldiers are now living there in misappropriated barrack rooms?


The erection of 24 married quarters in Buttevant Barracks is about to be commenced, which will meet the requirements. Of 30 soldiers' families now at Buttevant, 12 are provided for in married quarters, 12 are on the lodging list, and six are in separate rooms set apart for their accommodation without inconvenience to other services.


How soon will the proposed works be commenced?


Very shortly, but I cannot tell the hon. Gentleman exactly.
