§ MR. BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works when it is intended to begin the building of the new post office at Aberdeen; a portion of the sum to be expended in the erection of which, although a small sum, appears in the Estimates for the coming financial year.
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS-DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
I am afraid it will not be possible to begin the erection of the Aberdeen post office building until late in the year. To my regret, I find myself unable to provide in the Estimates more than would enable me to commence the 1192 work. The right hon. Gentleman may rely upon me to see that it shall be taken in hand as early in the autumn as possible.
