§ MR. W. H. MYERS (Winchester)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he will kindly state whether the contracts for the rebuilding of Winchester Barracks have been put out and how soon the work will be begun?
§ MR. BRODRICK
The preliminary excavations for the foundations are completed, and the detailed plans nearly so. Building operations must of necessity await the proper solidification of the foundations, which, from the large masses of concrete employed, will take some time. The contract will be put out as soon as possible.
