§ DR. FARQUHARSON (Aberdeenshire, W.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board if he has had his attention called to a discrepancy of £70,000 between the estimate of the architect for the Brook Hospital and the final cost of this building; and if he will consent to supply the House with a Return showing the actual cost of each of the hospitals of the Metropolitan Hospital Asylum Board in comparison with the original estimate for the same?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. H. CHAPLIN,) Lincolnshire, Sleaford
There is a large discrepancy, amounting to upwards of £60,000, between the estimate of the architect, and the cost of the hospital buildings, and the subject is receiving my attention. If the honourable Member gives notice of a Motion for a Return I will consider the Question.
