HC Deb 31 January 1956 vol 548 c89W
Mr. Cooper-Key

asked the Minister of Works the purpose and cost of the alterations now being carried out in Parliament Square.

Mr. Buchan-Hepburn

As my predecessor announced in the answer which he gave on 13th December last to the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Montgomery, a site is being prepared in Parliament Square for the memorial to the late Field Marshal Smuts. The alterations will, for architectural reasons, provide space for a second memorial at any time in the future. The estimated cost, including the cost of the statue, is £16,500.
