§ *MR. HAROLD COX (Preston)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War at what date the building of the now dismantled forts around London was sanctioned, and what has been the total cost of these forts.
§ MR. HALDANE
It is presumed that this Question refers to the mobilisation centres round London, some of which are in the form of redoubts. These were begun in 1889. Their total cost amounted to £160,700.
