I propose for the time being to continue my present policy of considering particular cases on their merits. I have, however, put in hand a review of the whole matter in the light of increasing experience in this country and abroad.
Has my right hon. Friend visited Paris lately and seen the absolutely staggering transformation which has been carried out there to public buildings? Will he make a further statement—if he is making investigations—as to his plans in this matter?
I have, happily, visited Paris from time to time. I think that the progress made there is remarkable, but the circumstances are, of course, rather different. I will certainly consider publishing the review if it proves to be of sufficient general interest.
