HC Deb 18 February 1964 vol 689 c167W
3. Mr. Ronald Bell

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what will, according to present plans, be the height of the new buildings of Knightsbridge Barracks; and whether he is satisfied that they will not injure the amenity of the Park.

Mr. Sharples

The plans include a tower 280 ft. high. The accommodation required on this site cannot be provided without some high building. I think the House will agree that the balance of Sir Basil Spence's plan is admirably judged and should provide a fine addition to the London scene from all viewpoints, including the Park.
