HC Deb 20 June 1878 vol 240 cc1882-3

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the Report of the Commission on the Board of Works, which he intimated some time ago would be in the hands of Members shortly after Easter, may be expected before the Vote for that Department is taken?


Sir, the Report has been unavoidably delayed owing to the wide range of the subjects embraced within the inquiry. It is now ready, and I hope will be in the hands of hon. Members in the course of a very few days. I am quite prepared to postpone the Vote until the Report is in the hands of hon. Members.
