HC Deb 29 February 1912 vol 34 c1547

asked on what items of expenditure economies amounting to about £13,400 have been made that enable office accommodation to be supplied for the Insurance Commissioners without a Supplementary Estimate being presented?

Captain F. E. GUEST

The term "economies" does not quite represent the source from which this expenditure has been defrayed. It has not been found possible to carry out all the works contemplated under the Vote for Public Buildings within the current financial year, and money has consequently become available for the accommodation of the Insurance Commissioners. Funds being available, it would not have been possible to present a Supplementary Estimate.
