HC Deb 30 October 1956 vol 558 cc120-1W
65. Sir W. Anstruther-Gray

asked the Minister of Works what response he has received to his appeal for the loan of classical statues and busts to occupy the niches in the Orangery at Kensington Palace.

Mr. Buchan-Hepburn

I have received many offers of busts and statues for which I am most grateful. Most of these however were not suitable for this particular purpose but I hope to make use of one or two.

With others kindly lent from Windsor Castle, the British Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum there is now a sufficient number of pieces to furnish the Orangery : though I should be glad of any further offers.
