HC Deb 14 August 1890 vol 348 cc984-5

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has any objection to state to the House the names of the high architectural authorities upon whose advice he appointed Mr. Norman Shaw architect for the new Police Buildings?


The artistic authorities of whom I spoke the other night were consulted by me in a strictly private and confidential way, and I do not feel justified in mentioning their names in public. I take upon myself the full responsibility for the appointment of Mr. Norman Shaw, and I think his work justifies his appointment.
