TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Clerk of Works, Office of Works
Date7 March 1906
DescriptionHarrison notes that he informed the previous Clerk of Works of the need for advance notice if workmen from the Office of Works require access to the roof of the building, so as to prevent unauthorised persons having access to parts of the building which may be accessed from the roof. The presence of workmen on the roof for the past two days, without Harrison having been informed, means that he is seeking assurance that the conditions previously requested be observed, as they were by Mr Norton.

He also asks that a fixed ladder be provided for a chimney which the chimney sweep states can only be properly cleaned from above, for which he requires a fixed ladder for safety reasons. He suggests times he will be available should the Clerk of Works wish to discuss the matter.
