HC Deb 25 February 1969 vol 778 c261W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what representations he has received in connection with the preservation of Woburn Square, Bloomsbury; and what action he proposes to take to prevent the demolition of houses in this square.

Mr. Greenwood

Outline planning permission for the redevelopment of Woburn Square was given by the London County Council in 1965 and approval of details by the G.L.C. last year. I have recently received a number of representations in favour of preservation, including a petition from my hon. Friend and one from students of London University. I have also noted the report of the decision of Convocation last Thursday and I am considering the matter.
