§ 64. Mr. Hannah
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he can make any statement about the preservation of Cumberland House, in Aberdeen?
§ The First Commissioner of Works (Sir Philip Sassoon)
I understand that the site, part of which is occupied by Provost Skene's House (Cumberland House) has been considered by the town council of Aberdeen for a new Town House, but that the possibility of extending the existing Town House is now being investigated. If, on investigation, this latter course proves to be feasible, it will, I hope, be possible to preserve Provost Skene's House, which is an important example of seventeenth century Scottish domestic architecture.
