HC Deb 20 May 1901 vol 94 cc585-6
LORD BALCARRES (Lancashire, Chorley)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if it has been determined to destroy the historical fortification known as the King's Bastion at Portsmouth.


No, Sir. Some slight modifications have been made in the eastern portion of the bastion which were absolutely necessary, but the main portion of the bastion will remain untouched.
