HC Deb 23 March 1971 vol 814 cc97-8W
Mr. Moate

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will describe the original and current use of the building situated between Horse Guards Parade and the Mall, sometimes referred to as the Citadel; and if he will estimate the cost of its demolition.

Mr. Amery

The Admiralty Citadel was erected as a communications centre and is still used for this purpose.

The cost of demolishing the structure to ground level was recently estimated to be £1.5 million.
