§ 49. Mr. C. BATHURST
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the public interest in the condition of the roof of Westminster Hall which, as disclosed by the official Report recently made to the Board of Works, has proved to be far more serious than was imagined six months ago, he will cause the above Report not merely to be presented to this House, but also to be printed and circulated for public information?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The publication of the full Report with illustrations would involve a serious expenditure of public money. The First Commissioner proposes, therefore, to issue the body of the Report as a Parliamentary Paper with such illustrations as are necessary to make it clear, and to place the remainder of the illustrations in the Library of the House.
