HC Deb 29 March 1897 vol 47 cc1550-1
MR. G. C. T. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to paragraph 13 of the Report of the Board of Visitors of the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, dated 29th December 1896, which states that the area for outdoor games available for the cadets is far too limited; that they consider it a matter of urgency that the cadets should be provided with more space for outdoor games than they have at present, the Common being now so crowded as to be of little use; that there is at the back of the Academy space enough of Government land; and that no time should be lost in levelling and draining this land for the use of the cadets; and whether any steps are being taken to carry out this recommendation?


The question of providing additional recreation ground for the Royal Military Academy will be considered when the Estimates for 1898–9 are under discussion.
