HC Deb 18 June 1901 vol 95 cc706-7

Elaborate calculations would be necessary to ascertain the amount already expended and remaining to be expended in respect of the particular works referred to in the hon. Member's question. I may say that, roughly speaking, £2,000,000 is about the sum required to complete all the works, some £300,000 of which would * See preceding volume, page 441. be spent upon the items proposed to be deferred.
