HC Deb 01 March 1917 vol 90 c2167W

asked whether the main road from Dublin to the Curragh Camp is extensively used for the transport of military stores and equipments, the heavy wagons required for which traffic do very considerable damage to the road and add to the cost of maintaining it; whether any contribution to the cost of such maintenance is made by the War Office or has ever been made; and, if not, whether an adequate contribution will now be made?


I have had to make inquiries in this case. Three of the important roads serving the Curragh Camp are being repaired, and the War Office is paying about half the sum that is being expended on the service.
