HC Deb 30 July 1957 vol 574 c1042
11. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Minister of Works if he has now commissioned drawings by Mr. Alan Sorrell of any ancient monuments in Scotland, showing how they looked in the times they were in use.

Mr. Molson

Yes, Sir. Mr. Alan Sorrell was commissioned by my Department in 1951 to make a reconstruction drawing of Jarlshof, the pre-historic and Viking settlement in the Shetland Islands. The original of this drawing has been exhibited in the Tea Room. I hope to commission Mr. Sorrell to produce similar drawings as soon as possible of two or three of the more important abbeys in Scotland.
