35. Mr. A. M. SAMUEL

asked the Minister of Agriculture what are the proposals dealing with the site of the Geological Museum in Jermyn Street, Piccadilly, after the museum has been transferred to Exhibition Road; has any offer been received to hire or purchase the site; and will provision be made in any case to allow of the eventual widening of Jermyn Street?


The site, being under the management of the Commissioners of Crown Lands, will be dealt with by them and will probably be let on building lease in accordance with their usual practice. They will not be in a position to entertain applications until it is known more definitely when the site will be available.
