§ 61. Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the First Commissioner of Works what has been the expenditure to date on the Haig Memorial statue; whether the revised model has yet been submitted; and by what date he anticipates the statue will be finally erected?
§ Mr. LANSBURY
There has been no further expenditure since my reply to the hon. Member for Ayr Burghs on the 21st November last, when the expenditure was £460, but an instalment of £100 is about to be paid to the sculptor in respect of the sum of £500 which it was agreed should be paid for the new and larger model. It is not passible to give any date for the erection of the statue, but the work on the new model is expected to take at least six months from the present date.
§ Mr. J. JONES
Will the right hon. Gentleman provide fish and chips in the parks for those who are poorer Members of the House?
