§ Mr. Maclennan
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what progress has been made with the arrangements for the erection of a statue within the Palace of Westminster to commemorate Sir Winston Churchill.42W
§ Mr. Prentice
A one-third scale model of the statue has been seen by most members of the Memorial Committee and by Lady Spencer Churchill. All were favourably impressed. I have seen and approved the model which will now be used by the sculptor, Mr. Oscar Nemon, as the basis for the development of a full scale model. This should be ready in 9 to 12 months' time. The bronze statue should be completed about 6 months after the approval of the full scale model.
