HC Deb 20 May 1903 vol 122 c1202
MR. BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)

To ask the hon. Member for North Hunts, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether any application or applications have been made by the Office of Works to the Commissioners of His Majesty's Treasury for their authorisation to the expenditure of a sufficient sum of money upon the paving with wood of Constitution Hill; and, if so, how many such applications have been made, and on what date, and what answer was given by the Treasury to each of such applications.

(Answered by Mr. Victor Cavendish.) Any suggestions made to the Treasury by the Office of Works as to the expenditure of public funds would necessarily be confidential, and the First Commissioner is therefore unable to give the right hon. Gentleman the information for which he asks.
