HC Deb 10 June 1887 vol 315 c1582
MR. W. L. BRIGHT (Stoke-upon-Trent)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether a contract has been entered into for a new police station on the Thames Embankment; if so, what is the contract price; what will be the rate per cubic foot of building; and, out of what funds the cost will be provided for?


No contract has yet been entered into for the erection of the new central police offices on the Embankment; but certain firms have been invited to send in tenders for the foundations. The rate per cubic foot cannot, therefore, be stated. The cost will be met out of a loan which it is proposed shortly to ask Parliament to sanction.
