HC Deb 14 July 1908 vol 192 cc590-1
MR. F. E. SMITH (Liverpool, Walton)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether the officers' quarters of the Army Service Corps at the Curragh Camp are unsuitable and unhealthy; whether they have been so for some years; whether they have been medically pronounced to be dangerous to health through damp in the winter months and through lack of ventilation in the summer months; and whether it is now intended to press forward with the plans for new buildings at once so as to protect the officers concerned from the danger and discomfort of another winter spent in unsanitary quarters.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) These quarters are undoubtedly old and uncomfortable, but, as I have already explained to the hon. Member, are not unfit for habitation. Plans for new buildings are being pressed forward with all possible despatch.
