§ 51. Sir C. COBB
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether his Department is negotiating for an interest in the premises near Bush House, Aldwych, London; and, if so, for what purpose?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Mr. Ormsby-Gore)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. In regard to the second part, the premises are being acquired primarily to relieve existing congestion in Somerset House and to provide for a concentration of Inland Revenue headquarters staffs.
