§ MR. ASHLEY (Lancashire, Blackpool)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what arrangements are being made to provide proper accommodation during the winter for the officers of the Army Service Corps at the Curragh.
§ MR. HALDANE
The Officers of the Army Service Corps are at present accommodated in huts at the Curragh, which are to be replaced by new buildings. As already stated, plans for these have been approved and the building will be proceeded with as soon as possible. Meanwhile the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Ireland, will take such steps as are necessary to ensure accommodation for these officers during the winter, in huts or in quarters, as is most suitable. Provision is made for the extra issue of fuel in Ireland, in unusually damp or cold weather.
