§ MR. T. W. LEGH (Lancashire, S.W., Newton)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works if he will consider the advisability of placing a quadriga or classical group upon the arch at Constitution Hill?
§ DR. TANNER
Before the right hon. Gentleman answers the question will he say whether he is prepared to put the obstruction now at Temple Bar upon Constitution Hill?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. PLUNKET,) Dublin University
I think it is very desirable that the arch at Constitution Hill should be surmounted by a quadriga, but any artistic group worthy of such a position would cost a great deal of money, and I am not prepared at present to make such a demand upon the Treasury.
