HC Deb 26 June 1874 vol 220 c510

said, that as the right hon. Gentleman (Mr. Disraeli) had not answered the latter part of the Question which he put to him a few minutes ago; he was desirous of learning from him, Whether the Government intend to purchase the block of buildings between Parliament Street and King Street?


Sir, I quite understand the scope of the Question of the hon. Member; but I must say I do not think it for the public advantage that I should at the present moment express in any distinct or definite manner what are the steps which Her Majesty's Government contemplate to effect the object we have in view.
