§ MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the Report of the Board of Visitors to the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, in which it is stated that the Board were much surprised that nothing had been done towards providing a drill-shed; that the necessity for such a building has been urged by successive Boards for several years, and the present members are at a loss to understand why its erection has been so long delayed; and that the Board again emphatically urged the necessity for a drill-shed being at once constructed; and whether he will undertake that it be erected this summer.
§ MR. BRODRICK
Funds have not been available to provide for all the recommendations of the Board of Visitors, and this service was postponed for the more pressing service of accommodating an increased number of cadets. It cannot now be provided in 1901.
