HC Deb 28 June 1883 vol 280 c1706

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, When the further papers relating to the proposed Harbour of Refuge at Dover will be laid upon the Table; and if he will undertake that the Vote providing for the erection of a Convict Prison at Dover shall not be proceeded with until after the House has had an opportunity of considering the information to be given?


The question of the exact character of the harbour which it is proposed to make at Dover is not yet sufficiently advanced for Papers to be presented respecting it; but the Convict Vote will not be taken until the House is in the possession of further information on the subject.
