HC Deb 06 June 1904 vol 135 c790

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that an old building, known as the Shambles Barracks-of Galway, has been condemned long since; and that, in consequence of this condemned building extending into the street, congestion of traffic occurs; and, if so, will he say what action he proposes taking in the matter.


It was decided to dispose of these barracks, but owing to the pressure during the South African War it was found necessary to occupy them. It will not be possible to dispose of them until accommodation can be found elsewhere for the present, occupants.
