§ Mr. Grimond
asked the Minister of Works whether he will now make a further statement on progress with the arrangements for the memorial to the late David Lloyd George.
§ Lord John Hope
The committee which is advising me on this memorial have recommended, and I have agreed, that it will be necessary to find a new sculptor for this statue. Before deciding whom to recommend, the committee have asked for a decision on the material to be used. After giving full weight to all the views expressed to me, I have decided that bronze is the best material for this statue.
I should like to express my gratitude to my right hon. Friend the Member for Carshalton (Mr. Head) and all the members of his committee, of whom the hon. Member is one, for their advice on this question.
