HC Deb 15 May 1956 vol 552 c157W
41. Mr. Willey

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works, as representing the Lord President of the Council, what are the Government's plans for a National Science Centre.

Mr. Bevins

In 1952 it was stated that the planning of the Science Centre had had to be deferred, and I regret to say that that position is still unchanged. Plans for a new Patent Office and Scientific Reference Library on the South Bank are, however, under discussion between the Departments concerned.
