HC Deb 13 June 1872 vol 211 c1689

asked the Chief Commissioner of Works, How soon a new Ordnance Survey of Lincolnshire may be expected to be published, and on what scale or scales the maps will be drawn?


said, in reply, that, according to the new principle by which the surveyors were to be guided, counties of the greatest importance would be first selected; but the selection would be qualified by a regard to the requirements of the War Office. At that rate Lincolnshire would probably be surveyed in the course of the next 10 years.
