HC Deb 09 April 1970 vol 799 c104W
45. Mr. Henig

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he expects to receive the report of the working party on the possibility of establishing a second auditorium for opera and ballet in the Covent Garden area.

Miss Jennie Lee

I have already received the report of the working party which I set up to consider the plans and estimates prepared by the Board of the Royal Opera House for redevelopment when the Covent Garden market moves to Nine Elms. I am studying carefully the contents of the report. Phase III of the plan includes the provision of a second auditorium.
