HC Deb 20 February 1862 vol 165 cc495-6

said, he wished to ask the First Commissioner of Works, If he will lay upon the table of the House a copy of all Correspondence between the Treasury, the Office of Works and Buildings, and the Office of Woods, in reference to the Report of the Thames Embankment Commissioners, and any Bill to be founded or introduced on such Report.


said, he was not prepared to produce this correspondence, which was a departmental one, concerning a Bill which was not on the table of the House. He did not think that its production would be of any public utility, while it would add to the Parliamentary printing account, which in general amounted to £24,000 per annum.
