§ The Marquess of Ailesbury
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Why, at the height of the tourist season, they permit the statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus to be surrounded by unsightly advertising hoardings.
§ Lord Skelmersdale
The statue of Eros is owned by the Greater London Council. They have erected hoardings to protect the statue prior to restoration work. Planning permission was not required for this. I understand that the advertisements are unlicensed fly posters.
