MR. H. J. BAILLIE
said, he was happy to find that the hon. Member for Montrose had moved for these returns. The original estimate of the expense of the New Houses was 800,000l.; but already nearly 1,000,000l. had been expended, and he had little doubt that before the building was finished the cost would not be less than 2,000,000l. He thought the House must take into their hands the control of the future expenditure.
§ Motion agreed to.
