My right hon. Friend Mr. Smith announced on 15 November 2000 that the statue of Sir Walter Raleigh, which is currently sited in Whitehall, should be moved to a new home at the Royal Naval college, Greenwich. English Heritage, who are the statue's guardians, are managing the relocation with the intention of completing the re-siting by the autumn.
