HL Deb 23 January 1962 vol 236 c914WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When it is expected that the new Commonwealth Institute in Kensington High Street will be completed; and what arrangements are being made to continue the work of the Institute meanwhile.


It is expected that the new building will be completed and opened to the public towards the end of October. The re-designing of exhibitions in preparation for the move to new premises has made it necessary to close the Institute to the public from the beginning of this year. This does not, however, involve any interruption of the Institute's extra-mural activities.

House adjourned at sixteen minutes before seven o'clock.
