§ THE EARL OF DERBY
said, that a few days ago a noble Lord (Lord Lyveden) had 1013 asked him a Question with regard to the alterations now going on in the immediate neighbourhood of the Houses of Parliament which he was at that time unable to answer. Mr. Edward Barry, however, the architect in charge of the works, had since informed him that they were rapidly approaching completion, and had furnished him with a block plan of the alterations in course of progress. That plan would show their Lordships clearly what was intended to be done. He did not propose to lay the plan upon the table of the House, but to place it in the Library, where it could be seen by their Lordships; and if it was desired that it should subsequently be lithographed and circulated as a Parliamentary Paper, he was perfectly willing that that course should be adopted.
