68. Mr. TYSON WILSON
asked the cost, separately, of the following Commissions, namely, Ancient Monuments (Scotland), Ancient Monuments (Wales and Momouthshire), and Ancient Monuments (England); and whether he can state when the various Commissions are likely to complete their labours?
§ The FINANCIAL. SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Masterman)
The net expenditure of these Commissions to the 31st March last was:—
I fear I can make no statement as to the probable duration of these Commissions, but for a statement of the progress of their investigations I would refer the hon. Member to pages 562 and 563 of the Civil Service Estimates.
£ Ancient Monuments (Scotland) 4,676 Ancient Monuments (Wales and Monmouthshire). 5,688 Ancient Monuments (England) 8,944
§ Mr. T. M. HEALY
Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that Ireland will gladly co-operate in this expense, which we think most desirable?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
I understand that is so, and I am glad to hear it from the hon. and learned Gentleman.
