HC Deb 30 April 1869 vol 195 c1973

said, he wished to ask the First Commissioner of Works, If it is the intention of the Government to proceed this Session with the Bill for the acquisition of an additional site for the Public Offices in Great George Street, Delahay Street, and the adjacent streets?

MR. LAYARD, in reply, said the Government would proceed with the Bill which gave them power to take possession of the land between the India Office and Great George Street. It was, however, intended to exclude from the Bill certain houses in Great George Street, Delahay Street, and Duke Street, which were included in the deposited plan. He would strike out those houses from the Bill in Committee.
