HC Deb 28 May 1880 vol 252 c637

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether Her Majesty's Government have in view any plan by which the arrangements for the admission of visitors to the Tower of London can be improved; and, if so, whether he will state the nature of such plan?


Sir, in reply to my hon. Friend, I have to state that the present arrangements for the admission of, visitors to the Tower appear to me capable of great improvement; and I have set on foot proposals which will, I hope, lead to a more reasonable system. But the number of officers and Departments concerned, and who have to be consulted on the subject, is so great that I do not expect to be able to submit a final plan for Her Majesty's approval for some little time to come; but, when settled, it shall be communicated to the House.
