HC Deb 14 June 1920 vol 130 c910W
Lieut.-Colonel JAMES

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether his Department has accepted the offer of the Commissioners of the Chelsea Royal Hospital to lend the site at Burton Court, Chelsea, at present occupied by the buildings of the Ministry of Pensions, for four years free of charge on condition that their premises are entirely evacuated at the end of this period; and whether he is still pressing for a lease of the site in question?


I regret that it has not yet been found possible to arrive at a decision on the offer made by the Commissioners of the Chelsea Royal Hospital regarding the Burton Court Site, but negotiations are proceeding. The question is bound up with the future organisation of the Ministry of Pensions with whom I am in Communication.
