HC Deb 31 July 1962 vol 664 cc61-2W
71. Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works, when he expects the United Services Museum to vacate the Banqueting Hall; and what use the building is then to be put to.

Mr. Rippon

I expect to have possession of the main Hall of the Banqueting House by the end of this year and of the Crypt some months later. I hope to restore and prepare the main Hall in time for it to be opened to the public at Whitsun 1963.
