HC Deb 16 July 1963 vol 681 cc321-2
21. Mr. A. Royle

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what plans he has for the future of Richmond Terrace, Westminster.

Mr. Rippon

The intention is to demolish the Terrace and to redevelop the site in conjunction with the new Bridge Street development.

Mr. Royle

As the Terrace is named after my constituency, will my right hon. Friend reconsider the decision to demolish these magnificent buildings?

Mr. Rippon

While not accepting the relevance of the connection, I do not think that I can reconsider the position.

Mr. Allason

Are the interiors in a good condition, and is there any chance of saving them?

Mr. Rippon

They are not in very good condition, and they provide very poor office accommodation.
