HC Deb 21 February 1888 vol 322 cc986-7
MR. BOORD (Greenwich)

asked the hon. Member for the Knutsford Division of Cheshire, Whether any step has yet been taken by the Metropolitan Board of Works, under the powers conferred upon them by their Act of last Session, towards commencing the subway between Greenwich and Blackwall; and, whether notices have been given to the owners and occupiers of the lands required for the works?

MR. TATTON EGERTON (Cheshire, Knutsford),

in reply, said, that negotiations had been commenced with the owners of the largest properties, and notices had been served on the owners and occupiers of other property. The negotiations had now assumed a favourable turn, and it was to be expected that the work would begin shortly.
