HC Deb 24 April 1968 vol 763 c64W
Mr. Jennings

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works if he will take steps to prevent the sale of London Bridge to interests in a foreign country.

Mr. MacDermot

I have been asked to reply.

The demolition of London Bridge was authorised by an Act of Parliament. My right hon. Friend has no power to prevent the sale of its constituent parts, and he would not think it right to seek to do so.
