HC Deb 27 February 1860 vol 156 cc1837-8

said, he would beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works when the statue of Richard Coeur de Lion, by Baron Marochetti, for the erection of which a Vote of £1,650 was granted last year, will be put up on the intended site? He also wished to inquire when the lions will be placed in Trafalgar Square?


said, he must beg to explain that the delay had arisen from the difficulty which was experienced in getting granite for the pedestal of the statue from the quarries. Everything was completed with the exception of the pedestal, and it was contemplated that the statue would be ready for erection in about two months. He would rather answer the second question on a future day.
