HC Deb 23 July 1912 vol 41 c976
61. Mr. MUNRO

asked whether, looking to the difference of opinion which exists regarding the suitability of the stone from the Eday quarry for the construction of the Wick Post Office, he will take advantage of the offer which has been made to him to have an independent report made on the quality of the stone by an expert?

Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)

The First Commissioner does not think that an independent report is necessary. The quality of the stone is not the only point which has to be taken into consideration.
