§ 16. Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE
asked the Secretary of State for War what steps have been taken to ameliorate the condition of the Royal Artillery units in the garrisons in South Ireland; and whether married officers and men are allowed to be accompanied by their families?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
It has, I regret, been impossible as yet to embark on any improvements to the barracks in South Ireland occupied by British troops. As regards the second part of the question, married families are allowed to accompany officers and other ranks in cases where married quarters are available; in other cases the family is allowed to join t he husband, provided that the latter can procure suitable accommodation.
§ Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE
Is the Secretary for War aware there are many places in South Ireland where married Quarters are available?
