§ MR. ALDEN (Middlesex, Tottenham)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of 413 Works if he will state how many times a week during the last month the temporary courts at the Law Courts have been used; whether he can say what will be the ultimate cost of the new buildings when completed; and whether he has satisfied himself that the new Courts are absolutely necessary.
§ MR. L. HARCOURT
Owing to the Judges being absent on circuit and from other causes these Courts have not been used during the last month except by the senior Master in Chancery for hearings. The now Courts are estimated to cost £95,000. The reply to the last paragraph is in the affirmative.
