HC Deb 06 February 1951 vol 483 c1507
1. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning if he will make available in the Library the proposed layout proposals for the South Bank of the River Thames between County Hall and Waterloo Bridge including the section where the new Government offices are to be situated.

The Minister of Local Government and Planning (Mr. Dalton)

The London County Council have not yet submitted any detailed plans to me, but they propose to zone this area for public buildings.

Mr. Dodds

In view of the Minister's reply, would he not agree that it is not unfair to suggest that the South Bank Exhibition cannot be continued into 1952 because of the early development of the site for other projects, and will the right hon. Gentleman bring that information to the attention of the Lord President of the Council?

Mr. Dalton

That request is going a little too wide, but I will mention the matter to him.
