HC Deb 08 June 1903 vol 123 cc218-9
MR. CLAUDE HAY (Shoreditch, Hoxton)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for West Derbyshire, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether he will arrange for the statue of the late Right Hon. John Bright to be placed in the position now occupied by the bust of Oliver Cromwell.


The position now occupied by this fine bust of Oliver Cromwell, the work of Bernini, was very carefully selected, and the proportions of the pedestal were specially designed with regard to it. The First Commissioner would deprecate its removal to another site.
