HC Deb 14 February 1895 vol 30 c744
MR. L. P. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)

I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works how much money the Government propose to ask out of the public taxes of Great Britain and Ireland for the purpose of erecting a statue to Oliver Cromwell; and, whether he will undertake, when the Estimates come on, to afford an opportunity to the House to express an opinion on the expenditure?


The sum proposed to be taken in the votes of Parliament for 1895–96 is an instalment of £500. I am unable as yet to give any further information. When the Estimates come on full opportunity will of course be afforded for an expression of opinion by the House.
