HC Deb 22 July 1926 vol 198 c1430W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the scheme proposed by the Government in 1920 for removing the headquarters of the University of London from South Kensington to Bloomsbury and concentrating King's College and other colleges in that neighbourhood has been abandoned; and, if so, whether the Treasury has proposed any alternative plan for providing the needed accommodation for the central offices of the university?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part certain suggestions are at present under consideration, but as I stated in my reply to the hon. Member for the South Eastern Division of St. Pancras (Mr. Hopkins) no final decision has been reached.
