§ 21. Mr. Strauss
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what parts of the site previously allocated for the British Museum's library have been sold or are being offered for sale.
§ Mr. Mellish
None, Sir. As I indicated in the House on 27th November, 1967, I am awaiting the Dainton Committee Report before taking action to dispose of the properties my Ministry has acquired by voluntary purchase.—[Vol. 755, c. 8–9.]
§ Mr. Strauss
Is my right hon. Friend aware that his answer will give great satisfaction to those who are interested in the welfare of the British Museum?
