HC Deb 20 July 1876 vol 230 c1625

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether he can inform the House what is the estimated outlay of money expected to be incurred under the Bow Street Police Court (Site) Bill?


There will be payable to the Duke of Bedford a ground rental of £1,100 per annum for a lease of 99 years. There will be also a sum payable to the present tenants in respect of their interest, which will be ascertained in case of difference under the general Act. It is undesirable at the present moment to state at what sum those interests have been valued. The above-mentioned expenditure will be incurred for the site both for police court and police station. The proportion which will be payable in respect of the site of each of these buildings cannot be stated at present, and it will have hereafter to be determined accordingly what portion shall be borne by the Board of Works and what by the police rates. The cost of the buildings is estimated at £12,000 for the court and £8,000 for the police station, which will be charged to the separate heads of Public Works and police rates. These estimates for buildings are approximate.
