§ Sir A. Bossom
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if, before taking steps either as to exact location or height of the proposed development of the St. Thomas's Hospital site, he will have a clear diagrammatic sketch prepared showing the relation between the proposed new structure, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and the other important buildings now existing in the immediate proximity of the site, and have this sketch exhibited in the Tea Room.
§ Mr. Sandys
An inquiry is being held on 8th May into the proposals as submitted. Before arriving at any decision following the inquiry, I shall certainly bear in mind the relationship of the building, especially its height, to other buildings in the vicinity. Meanwhile a 245W sketch showing the outline of the building in relation to the Hospital and Lambeth Palace is among the plans to be placed in the Tea Room.
