HC Deb 07 June 1957 vol 571 cc161-2W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government, as Sir Christopher Wren's own design for the environment of St. Paul's Cathedral has been discovered since the tentative proposals for the treatment of this environment to be considered at the coming inquiry were made, and as these differ from Wren's own plan in practically every detail, if he will also invite for consideration proposals that are more in harmony with Wren's original plan, whilst caring for present-day requirements, and have

year. The reduction of 84 in the total approximately represents the number who left the industry, as there was practically no recruitment of additional workers. The decrease in the size of the Register was due solely to natural wastage.

Labour prospects depend upon the amount of traffic passing through the docks, but 1 understand that the National Dock Labour Board have no proposals under consideration for compulsorily reducing the size of the Register, although recruitment to replace natural wastage will not be undertaken for the present.

these also placed before the examining body to avoid any irretrievable decision being made regarding the surround.

Mr. H. Brooke

It is open to any person to represent at the public local inquiry to be held on 15th July that an alternative scheme would be preferable, and naturally this can relate to a scheme based on a design by Sir Christopher Wren. I am not certain what my hon. Friend has in mind in referring to a Wren design which has been discovered since Sir William Holford made his proposals, and perhaps he would let me know.
