FORT TAKAPUNA.

AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT. WELLINGTON, May 16. The Defence Department absolutely denies there is any foundation for the statements as to the bad condition of the barracks at Fort Takapuna, Auckland, and says that the excellence of the accommodation afforded the men elicited the greatest commendation from the ameers of the naval squadron, and that the real meaning of the complaints is that the men want to be removed from the barracks and given quarters in a large house on the ground, now in occupation of the officers, a thing which the department does not intend to permit.
