HC Deb 11 June 1934 vol 290 cc1355-6W

asked the First Commissioner of Works the present position of the work on the statue of the late Lord Haig; whether the design for the horse has been ultimately accepted and wherein it differs from the first design; and when it is expected that the work will be complete?


As regards the present position of the work and its completion, I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply of 7th June to a similar question by the hon. and gallant Member for Ayr Burghs (Lieut.-Colonel Moore). The special committee of assessors approved the design for the horse, subject to various modifications, but until the full size clay model is finished, my hon. Friend will appreciate that I cannot, at this stage, indicate the points of difference between it and the previous design.
