§ Mr. COURTHOPE
asked the hon. Member for Southampton, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether the hoarding which surrounds the Royal Artiltery memorial opposite the Duke of York's steps is intended to remain as a permanent addition to the Mall, and, if not, when the hoarding will be removed?
Mr. DUDLEY WARD
The First Commissioner of Works has no intention of retaining this hoarding longer than is necessary for the fixing of tablets to the memorial. He has again urged the Memorial Committee to expedite the work.
