HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c122W
122. Mr. Robert Jenkins

asked the Minister of Works whether he will remove Rodin's "The Burghers of Calais" from its present position under the Victoria Tower, where it is obscured by trees and a background of corrugated iron and scaffolding, to a site where it can be seen and appreciated by the public; and whether he will be prepared to allow it to be placed in Dulwich Park, if there is any difficulty in finding a suitable setting for this- historic work in Central London.

Mr. Eccles

When funds can be made available I will consider moving this group to a site nearby where it will be seen to a better advantage. I am consulting the Royal Fine Art Commission on the matter.
