§ 19. Mr. Evelyn King
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what are the reasons for the delay in building the new embassy in Rome; and when he hopes to proceed with the project.
§ Mr. C. Pannell
The same reasons which caused the postponement of many public projects in this country.
§ Mr. Pannell
I am at one with the hon. Gentleman in this. I am sensible that in a city of great historic beauty this country's representatives should be housed in a fitting building. We have accepted this in principle, and I hope that the work will start next September.
