HC Deb 16 July 1906 vol 160 c1333

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to the plans which are in contemplation for the development of the field of Waterloo as a building estate; and whether he will make representations to the Belgian Government with a view of insuring the preservation of the historic features of the battle ground.


My right hon. friend has seen a statement in the Press from which appears that little historical interest attaches to the farm at Waterloo which has been sold. I do not think that representations on the subject need be made to the Belgian Government.
