asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works what progress has been made regarding the proposed new Embassy at Washington?

Lieut.-Colonel SIR VIVIAN HENDERSON (for the First Commissioner of Works)

It is hoped that the contract for the building will be placed shortly. As hon. Members may be interested to see the design prepared by Sir Edwin Lutyens, my Noble Friend has arranged to exhibit the elevations In the Tea Room.
