HC Deb 26 March 1896 vol 39 cc161-2
MR. E. FLOWER (Bradford, W.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether he has as certained any information from local authorities as to the adequacy or inadequacy of the nature of the repairs proposed for the Barracks at Bradford Moor; and, if so, whether the Estimate are based upon such information?

MR. BYRON REED (Bradford, E.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether there is am objection on the part of the War Office to state, under Estimate T, the specific sum which is being expended during the current financial year upon the reparation of Bradford Moor Barracks; whether that amount includes the sum total of the repairs and alterations that are required; and, whether the repairs, when completed, will render the barracks in a thoroughly available state to be occupied by Her Majesty's troops?


In reply to my hon. Friend, and also to the Question standing in the name of the hon. Member for East Bradford, I have to say that the local military authorities furnished the information on which the estimate for the repairs to Bradford Barracks was framed. The actual expenditure during 1895–6 has been, under Sub-head Q £244, and under Sub-head T£881. Further sums will be expended in 1896–7, estimated at £479 for repairs and painting and £618 for drainage. These services will complete the necessary work; but the barracks are now available for occupation by troops.
