HC Deb 23 June 1899 vol 73 cc436-7
MR. CRILLY (Mayo, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War what portion of the sum of £1,422,000, which the statement laid upon the Table of the House on Monday night last informs us is to be spent during the coming financial year under the Barracks Act of 1890 and the Military Works Act of 1897, will be devoted to military purposes under these Acts in Ireland; in what localities will the money, if any, allotted to Ireland be spent; and what special works are in contemplation in those localities.


It is expected that about £170,000 will be spent during the present financial year on barrack services in Ireland. The largest items are for the reconstruction of barracks at Dublin and the Curragh.
