HC Deb 29 July 1960 vol 627 c236W
Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Works when work on the new Colonial Office will restart.

Lord John Hope

As my predecessor informed my hon. Friend the Member for St. Marylebone (Sir W. Wakefield), on 25th November, 1958, it is now proposed to provide a new building for the Colonial Office on the site of Richmond Terrace. It is hoped to start this work in 1963. A Government building is also to be erected on the back part of the site formerly intended for the Colonial Office and it is hoped that this work also will start in 1963.
