BARRY ISLAND"FORT. TH3 WAS OFFICE IN ERROR. In the House of Commons last week, in reply to a. question by Major Wyndham- Quin, M.P., for South Glamorgan, the Under- Secretary of State for War stated that tlie Barry L rbon District Council had refused to give its sanction, hence the delay of the Government in proceeding with the work of erecting the intended fort on Barry Island. Knowing that the Barry District Council had received no correspondence from the Secretary of State for War in the matter, our Barry reporter placed himself in communication with the War Office and Major Wvndham-Quin, and has just received the following letter in reply — "Wur Office.—It is quite right to etate that no communication has been made to the Barry District Council in connection with the Barry Island Fort. The reply gtven on the 9th., insti, in the House of Commons was not intended to suggest that. thought it is open to that interpretation. draft agree- ment with Lord Windsor for the acquisition of some additional land required for the fort, provides for the con- struction of a road in front of t.io battery. Lord Windsor has no objection to gi\ing firing rights over the road, but as it is his intention to hand over the road to the district council^ it will be necessary, before the arrangement with Lord Windsor is concluded, to know whether the council would, in the event mentioned, object to the exercise of firing rights. Without these rights it would be useless to construct tfie battery."
