§ SIR STAFFORD NORTHCOTE
said, he wished to give notice that in Committee on the Fortifications Bill he should move the insertion of a clause or clauses to restrict the application of money which might be raised under the authority of the Act to the completion of such contracts for works as were already made, or such as might hereafter be made, subject to the previous approval of Parliament.
SIR GEOEGE LEWIS
said, that in re- 1106 ference to a remark which fell from the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Wiltshire (Mr. S. Estcourt), at a late hour on Tuesday night, he wished to state that it was his intention to furnish the fullest information on the subject of works and fortifications, either with regard to past expenditure or with reference to future. He would take care to lay on the table of the House to-morrow an additional account to the one which had been circulated that morning, which he hoped might be in the hands of hon. Members by Monday next.
§ MR. SOTHERON ESTCOURT
said, it would be satisfactory to the House if the right hon. Gentleman stated on what day it was his intention to move the second reading of the Fortifications Bill.
