HC Deb 29 February 1912 vol 34 c1678W

asked the hon. Member for the East Dorset Division, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, what was the amount paid in purchase of the Wellington House Hotel, Buckingham Gate, as offices for the Insurance Commissioners; whether offices have been acquired for the Scotch, Welsh, and Irish Commissioners; and, if so, at what cost?

Captain GUEST

It is very undesirable at present to make any statement as to the amount of rent paid, in view of the possible necessity of acquiring premises in London for this or kindred purposes.
