Yes, Sir. Negotiations have now been completed for the purchase by His Majesty's Government of a site known as Regents Lodge adjoining the Outer Circle of Regents Park.

Would my right hon. Friend make it clear that there is a body of trustees, Moslems and non-Moslems, of whom I am one, for handling this matter who are quite satisfied with the arrangements made by His Majesty's Government?
