HC Deb 04 May 1938 vol 335 c896W
Captain Graham

asked the First Commissioner of Works how soon the westernmost large panel of Tijou's wrought-iron screen at the River Thames end of Hampton Court Palace gardens will have its central medallion repaired and its crown replaced?

Sir P. Sassoon:

I am happy to say that it will be possible to replace the medallion and crown next week. They were removed, not for repair, but because examples of Tijou's work were required for the information of the craftsmen who are at present repairing other portions of the screen.
