HC Deb 29 January 1913 vol 47 c1332

asked the hon. Member for St. George' s-in-the-East, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether his Department is responsible for the unsightly condition of the Charing Cross approach to the Admiralty Arch; and, if not, whether he can take steps to induce the responsible authorities speedily to amend what is at present a disfigurement of one of the finest sites in London?

Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)

This is a matter outside the jurisdiction of the Office of Works, and one for the London County Council to deal with.
