HC Deb 26 March 1957 vol 567 c956
27. Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Works what recent action has been taken to re-erect fallen stones at Stonehenge.

The Minister of Works (Mr. Hugh Molson)

Preparatory studies and arrangements are in progress, and I hope the trilithon and two Outer Circle stones will be re-erected next year.

Mr. Speaker

Question No. 28.

Mr. Nicholson

Is not an hon. Member permitted to ask a supplementary question on this important matter?

Mr. Speaker

I did not see the hon. Member rise, but he may ask his supplementary question.

Mr. Nicholson

Is my right hon. Friend aware that there is a school of archaeological thought which is most suspicious of what the Minister is proposing? Will he look into the matter again?

Mr. Molson

There is profound suspicion amongst all archaeologists about what all other archaeologists say or do.
