HC Deb 20 April 1956 vol 551 c110W
Mrs. L. Jeger

asked the Minister of Works the estimated capital cost of the new National Library in Bloomsbury.

Mr. Buchan-Hepburn

The cost of acquiring the site and erecting buildings has been put, as a working basis, at about £10 million; but as the project will extend over a great many years, this cannot be regarded as a reliable estimate.
