HC Deb 27 March 1911 vol 23 c882

asked the hon. Member for Southampton, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, when it is anticipated that the new public offices in Great George Street, Westminster, will be completed; and what Government Departments are to be housed therein?

The TREASURER of the HOUSEHOLD (Mr. Dudley Ward)

The First Commissioner of Works anticipates that these new public offices will be completed in about five years' time; he does not wish at this early stage to commit himself to the exact arrangements which will be made for the occupation of this building.


Will these buildings go-any further into the park than the old buildings which stood there?


There will be a slight rearrangement of the boundary, but the general effect will be to increase the area of the park.
