§ MR. JACKSON
said, he observed by the Estimates that the sum of £100,000 was to be voted for Westminster Bridge. He hoped that this might prove to be a final Vote, but be feared that when the bridge was finished there would be an annual Vote for its repair. However, he wished to ask whether the time had not come when the Government should take into consideration the propriety of leaving the cost of the metropolitan bridges to be defrayed exclusively by the districts which used them, instead of by the country at large?
THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, that all the papers explanatory of the circumstances respecting Westminster Bridge had been placed upon the table in the early part of the Session.
§ Motion agreed to.
