HC Deb 13 March 1905 vol 142 cc1179-80

To ask the Secretary of State for War if he will explain for what reason, and by whose instructions, has the Trainfield Gate, in connection with Victoria Barracks, Belfast, been closed; whether, in view of the fact that residents in the barracks have used the Trainfield Gate for years for the purpose of buying necessaries, he will direct the use of this gate as heretofore.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold-Forster.) My hon. friend has been some-what misinformed. The general officer commanding reports that liquor only is not permitted to be brought into the barracks through the Trainfield Gate by soldiers or their families.
