§ 24. Mr. HOGGE
asked whether it is the intention of the Government to remove the existing Calton Prison, Edinburgh, and to use the site for Government offices; if so, when is the change contemplated and what offices are to be accommodated there; and whether every care will be taken in any new buildings that are to be erected to preserve this natural feature of Edinburgh?
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)
There is a project of this kind under consideration, but the details are not yet worked out, and no buildings could be commenced in any case without the matter being laid before Parliament. I can assure my hon. Friend that, in any designs for new buildings, care would be taken to preserve the amenities of Edinburgh.
