§ Mrs. Lena Jeger
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to publish the proposed plans for the National Library in Bloomsbury; and what is his most recent estimate of the cost of the buildings, compensation to displaced businesses and rehousing of residents.
§ Mr. Channon
Design proposals for the British Library are now being examined in detail. As these are inevitably very complex it is too early yet to say when they will be published or what the cost would be.
