HC Deb 05 March 1885 vol 295 c124

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether his attention has been drawn to the Corporation of London Tower Bridge Bill, and to the fact that the centre line of the proposed bridge, as shown by the deposited plan and sections, intersects the precincts of the Tower of London; and, whether the promoters of the Bill have yet applied for and obtained any sanction for such interference, or for the erection of the bridge, in such close proximity to the fortress?


My attention has been drawn to the interference by the proposed bridge with the Tower precincts, and I have called upon the promoters to submit revised plans.
