HC Deb 23 June 1910 vol 18 cc502-3

asked if the military barracks at Belturbet, county Cavan, are at present in perfect repair and fit for the reception of troops, and are now and have been vacant for some two years; whether it is intended to spend a large sum of money on the military barracks at Cavan, within a distance of ten miles, to provide accommodation for troops which already exists at Belturbet without further expenditure; whether a memorial has been presented from inhabitants at Belturbet and district asking that troops may be quartered there; and what reply has been sent to the memorial?


Will the hon. Member kindly refer to a reply which I gave to a question on this subject put by the hon. Member for the West Division of Cavan on the 14th instant. As I then explained, the barracks at Belturbet have been dismantled and considerable expenditure would be necessary to fit them for the accommodation of troops.
