HC Deb 19 October 1916 vol 86 cc745-6W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he can state the cost of the new Detention Barracks at Wimbledon Camp; when they will be ready; for how many men accommodation is being provided; who is responsible for carrying out the work; and whether the cells were originally fitted with the locks inside the doors?


The estimated cost is £1,300, but the actual cost when ascertained will probably be rather less. The buildings are nearly completed; some small defects still require remedying. The accommodation provides for twelve cells and the guard. The officer responsible for carrying out the work is the General Officer Commanding London District. The contracts originally provided wrong doors, which were at once returned for proper doors to be supplied.
