HC Deb 15 July 1875 vol 225 c1479

asked the honourable and gallant Baronet the Member for Truro, Whether he is able to announce to the House, that by the co-operation of the Corporation of London, there is any chance of the removal of Temple Bar from its present position?


, in reply, said, that although Temple Bar marked the limit of the jurisdiction between the City of London and the Metropolitan Board of Works, it was entirely under the control of the Corporation of the City of Loudon, the Board of Works having no authority over it. He believed the City had appointed a committee to inquire what was best to be done with that ancient monument. He might add that there had been a proposition from the City of London about certain improvements in that locality. That proposition was under the consideration of the Metropolitan Board; but he was not, as yet, prepared to state the result of their deliberations.
