HC Deb 14 July 1953 vol 517 c144W
84. Mr. Ian Winterbottom

asked the Minister of Works, if he has yet decided to preserve the Queen's Beasts; and where he will place them.

Sir D. Eccles

The Queen's Beasts will be preserved and I am arranging for them to be removed temporarily to the Great Hall at Hampton Court. I am considering further where they can find a permanent home.
