HC Deb 10 May 1948 vol 450 cc1709-10
9. Mr. Wilson Harris

asked the Minister of Works whether he will appoint a small committee to consider the statues for which his Department is responsible and make proposals for the re-siting of some statues and the possible removal of others, with a view to giving a better display to those statues which most merit it by reason either of the subject or the treatment.

Mr. Key

No, Sir, I do not think that the expenditure of time and money upon such an inquiry at the present time would be justified.

Mr. Harris

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, although his answer causes me deep disappointment, it will not affect our personal relationships?

Colonel Gomme-Duncan

Will the right hon. Gentleman assure the House that he has not forgotten the question of King George IV's spurs in Trafalgar Square?
