§ MR. LAWSON (St. Pancras, W.)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether he has seen the answer of the Decorators' Society to his statement in reference to the repair of furniture in the Foreign Office; and what steps he has taken to inquire into the truth of their allegations?
§ *THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. PLUNKET,) University of Dublin
I have forwarded the answer of the Decorators' Society referred to in the question to Messrs. Jenks and Wood for their observations. I have not yet had an answer, as the partner in the firm who dealt with the particular subject has not returned to London, but I have no doubt I shall soon have the answer.
