HC Deb 23 November 1972 vol 846 c478W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the present state of planning for the new National Library; what discussions he has had with the Borough of Camden, particularly regarding the responsibility for rehousing; and what financial recompense will be made to the borough in connection with this rehousing.

Mr. Channon

I hope to publish design proposals early in 1973. My officials hold regular meetings with the Greater London Council and Camden officials on rehousing and other problems of mutual interest. As my Department is responsible for rehousing and compensating tenants on the site, the question of financial recompense to the borough does not arise.
