HC Deb 11 December 1900 vol 88 cc493-4
MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether complaints have reached him that the arrangement under which part of the staff of the 3rd Battalion Seaforth Highlanders (Ross-shire Militia) is quartered at Fort George, whilst the rest of the staff is quartered at Dingwall, the regimental depôt, is detrimental to the interests of the regiment; and, in view of the fact that there are several sites in the immediate vicinity of Dingwall on which buildings suitable for the accommodation of the whole of the staff and men might be erected, will he consider the expediency of providing such accommodation.


I have nothing to add to the reply given to an identical question put by the hon. Member in February last.†


The answer in February last stated that only one site was available; now there are several. Will the right hon. Gentleman look into this matter?


As I have already said, I have nothing to add to what I said in February last.
