HC Deb 08 March 1948 vol 448 c115W
25. Commander Maitland

asked the Minister of Works whether it is the intention of His Majesty's Government to keep the War Cabinet rooms in the same state as they were in at the end of the war which is their condition at present; whether members of the public may be allowed to see these rooms; and whether details and photographs of them which would be of great interest may be made available to the public through the medium of the Press.

Mr. Key

Yes. The more important of these rooms will be maintained as they were used during the war. My Department will be happy to arrange for the Press to take photographs and, in fact, some photographs have already appeared. Owing to the situation of the rooms it would not be practicable to throw open for inspection by the general public accommodation which forms part of an office where confidential work is carried on.

Forward to
