HC Deb 24 March 1947 vol 435 cc152-3W
116. Mr. Keeling

asked the Minister of Works what will be the greatest height of the proposed new Colonial Office on the site now occupied by the old Westminster Hospital, overlooking the Abbey; and what will be the height of the main wall head nearest to the Abbey.

Mr. Key

The plans and dimensions of the new building have still to be considered. The height of the main wall-head nearest to the Abbey is restricted to 75 feet by the Westminster Hospital Act, 1913, and this provision is not varied by the Site Bill now before the House.
