§ MR. H. S. NORTHCOTE
asked the First Commissioner of Works, Why builders desirous to tender for the erection of the new Post Office at Exeter are required to attend at the office of works Bristol to inspect required drawings and specifications for the building; if he is aware that, with regard to the Post Office proposed to be built at Lincoln, a much less populous town than Exeter, arrangements have been made whereby drawings and specifications for the proposed new office can be inspected at Lincoln; and, if he will arrange that Exeter builders desirous to tender for the erection of the new Post Office shall have an opportunity of seeing the required specifications and drawings at Exeter?
§ MR. SHAW LEFEVRE
said, with regard to the circumstances referred to, it was too late, if it were desirable, to make any change, as the tenders had to be sent in by next Monday. The competition was an open one.
