HC Deb 01 March 1928 vol 214 c598
47. Mr. RYE

asked the Minister of Agriculture, as representing the Commissioners of Crown Lands, whether the vacant site on the Quadrant, Regent Street, extending into Glasshouse Street, has been lets; if not, whether negotiations are on foot in respect of such site; and when any rebuilding on such site is likely to take place?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, and to the second part in the affirmative. I cannot answer the last part of the question until the negotiations are completed.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this site has been vacant for four years owing to the very high ground rent demanded of the old tenant?


Anyhow, we are hoping now to let, it.
