§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON (Tower Hamlets, Poplar)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether his attention has been called to the statement that Mr. Chapple, the contractor for the New Post Office Buildings, St. Martins-le-Grand, has further sublet the first floor to Messrs. Smith and Taylor; and, if so, will he explain on what grounds this has been done, in view of his statement that sub-letting was carefully limited, and that no further portion of the stonework would be submitted to be sub-let?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. PLUNKET,) Dublin University
I have made inquiry of Mr. Chapple, and I am assured that there is no foundation whatever for the statements referred to in the question of the hon. Member.
