HC Deb 31 March 1930 vol 237 c898
74. Sir W. DAVISON

asked the Minister of Transport whether, having regard to the great interest taken by the public in the proposed new bridge at Charing Cross and the approaches thereto, arrangements can be made for the model which has been prepared for the information of the committee now dealing with the matter to be viewed by the public when the committee are not sitting?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

I have consulted the authorities of the House and the London County Council, whose property the model is, and I find that it would be extremely inconvenient, so long as the model is required by the committee, to permit the public at large to have access to examine it. I am, however, communicating further with the authorities of the House in the matter, and will let the hon. Member know the result.


I am much obliged to the hon. Gentleman. Will he consider whether it could be made available for the public on Saturdays, when the Palace of Westminster is open to the public?


That is one of the questions that I will keep in mind.
