  • Description

    The plans for a new building for the Commonwealth Institute were introduced by Sir Edward Boyle, Parliamentary secretary to the Ministry of Education, at a Press Conference in London today.

    The new premises, which will replace the present accommodation in the Collcutt building in South Kensington, will be erected on a 3 1/4 acre site at the southern end of Holland Park, fronting Kensington High Street, at an estimated cost of GBP725,000.

    Work will start next spring and is scheduled for completion in 1962, when the removal of the Institute from its present building will be necessitated by Government plans for the expansion of the Imperial College of Science and Technology.
