Mr. Creech Jones
asked the Minister of Works whether he will erect in Parliament Square a monument to commemorate the abolition of slavery.
§ Mr. Birch
As I announced on 15th November, I am seeking the approval of Parliament to the re-erection of the Buxton Memorial Fountain in the Victoria Tower Gardens. I have told the Anti-Slavery Society that, if my proposal is approved, I am prepared in addition to place an inscription in Parliament Square to mark the spot where the Fountain stood.
