HC Deb 30 November 1920 vol 135 c1096
21. Major Sir K. FRASER

asked the Secretary of State for War who is responsible for married officers quartered in Ireland being allowed to live out of barracks, seeing that these officers either have been or are liable to be employed on Courts-Martial of civilians and on duties in aid of the civil power; whether the administration branch Irish Command is responsible; and what action does he propose to take in the matter


The General Officer, Commanding-in-Chief, is responsible for the accommodation of officers in Ireland. I understand that there were special reasons for the arrangements which were made for the officers referred to, owing to the nature of their duties. These arrangements have required revision in the light of recent development of the rebels' murder campaign; and the General Officer, Commanding-in-Chief, will continue to have full discretion as to the measures to be adopted.
