Mr. Creech Jones:
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any progress has been made in the selection of a site for a Moslem mosque in London?
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.
Is my right hon. Friend aware that this development will be received with a great deal of appreciation and satisfaction?
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?
Should not this be made far better known throughout the world than it is?
