HC Deb 16 November 1926 vol 199 c1679

(for Mr. GILLETT) asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department as representing the First Commissioner of Works what is the estimated value of the plot of vacant land at the corner of Rosebery Avenue and King's Cross Road waiting to be used for an extension of the Post Office premises; how long has it been vacant; and when is it expected to make use of it?


I have been asked to reply. I regret that I am unable to give a valuation of the portion of the site referred to. It has been vacant since 1920. Building operations for the new Stamp Office which it is proposed to erect on this site have been suspended on account of the limitations on public expenditure imposed at the present time.
