mittees, to whom the Reports and Memorials of the Commissioners for the Improvement of the Streets and Places near Westminster Hall and the Two Houses of Parliament were again referred, with an Instrućtion to confider whether it is expedient that any Part of the vacant Space, occasioned by the Removal of the Buildings which have already been pulled down, and which before obstrućted the View of the Abbey Church Westminster, should be rebuilt upon: “That the Committee “ had met, and considered the Subject to them referred; “ and before forming an Opinion, in Compliance with the Instručtion which they had received, the Committee thought it necessary to ascertain the Value of the Ground on which it is proposed to build Dwelling Houses : It appears from the Estimate, that the “ Amount of Rent to be obtained from the whole Ex“tent of Land is £878. of this Sum £466. los. must “ be dedućted as a reserved Rent, payable to the Dean “ and Chapter of Westminster; the total Sum, therefore, “ to be received by the Public would be £41 1.
