HC Deb 23 November 1977 vol 939 c793W
74. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment for what purpose the site opposite Westminster Abbey has been designated since in 1958 it was no longer designated as the new Colonial Office.

Mr. Marks

The Broad Sanctuary site has been designated for a Government conference centre since 1960 and successive Governments have had designs prepared. Any decision to proceed must depend on economic circumstances.
