HC Deb 24 March 1896 vol 39 cc58-9
MR. THOMAS B. CURRAN (Donegal, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, if, in connection with work now being carried on at the Nedds Point Fort, Buncrana, he will consider the advisability of the War Department constructing a road from the town of Buncrana to that fort along the shore, seeing that the existing road to the fort is practically inaccessible and hardly ever used, and that the Officer of Engineers at present quartered at Buncrana is of opinion that this new road is highly desirable?


However convenient the road referred to in the Question would be, it is not required for military purposes; and the cost of its construction could not be defrayed from Army Funds.
