HC Deb 06 May 1912 vol 38 c191W

asked the Undersecretary of State for War in what way the War Department holds the buildings on the Roscommon side of the Shannon, at Shannon Bridge, King's County; does it pay rent for them; if so, how much and to whom; or why does it retain those buildings and lands, having sold all the other fortifications on the Shannon from Athlone to Limerick?

Colonel SEELY

The rent of a portion of this property is £59 11s.; the rest is freehold. The buildings are not in occupation by the military. Arrangements are being made for the surrender of the leasehold, and it is proposed to sell the freehold as soon as a favourable opportunity arises.
