asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether a vista from the portico of the south transept of St. Paul's to the River Thames is to be added as part of the plan for St. Paul's precincts; and whether the building now taking place south of Carter Lane will allow for this.

The approved development plan provides for a vista between 40 and 50 feet wide from the Cathedral to the river, and no proposal has been made which would affect this. The answer to the last part of the Question is in the affirmative.
