HC Deb 12 March 1912 vol 35 c1058W
Captain FABER

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any objections were made by the neighbourhood at the erection of a hoarding during alterations to be made at Wellington House, which has been bought under the National Insurance Act; whether repeated objections were made at the noise made during the night; and whether the contractor was ordered to cease the nightly disturbance?


It was necessary to carry out the alterations at Wellington House in a very short space of time, and some of the work had, therefore, to be done at night. In consequence of some complaints which were received, instructions were given that the noisy work should be carried out during the daytime.
