HC Deb 21 July 1959 vol 609 c1040
4. Mr. E. Fletcher

asked the Minister of Works what arrangements he is making with the City Corporation to ensure the preservation of a length of the Roman Wall of London near Cripplegate, abutting on the proposed new Route 11.

Mr. H. Nicholls

I understand that the position remains as stated in my right hon. Friend's letter of 8th August, 1958, to the hon. Member. The City Corporation intends to open up the wall and its bastions between Cripplegate and Falcon Square and to preserve them as part of an open space.

Mr. Fletcher

Can the hon. Gentleman now tell us when this will be done?

Mr. Nicholls

It is really a matter for the City Corporation. We shall make quite certain that the archaeological part of it is taken fully into account, but the decision is for the City Corporation.
