60. Mr. KING

asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether his attention has been called to the last two reports of the Public Trustee, declaring the necessity of permanent offices for his Department; and whether it is intended, in connection with the preparation of the Estimates for 1913–14, to make provision of suitable premises for the Public Trustee's increasing business?

Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)

A sum of £10,000 was taken in the Estimates for the current year for this service. The building is actively in progress, and a further amount will be taken in the Estimates for 1913–14.
