To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, for what reasons no public announcement was made of his decision to co-locate the Holocaust Learning Centre with the Memorial in Victoria Tower Gardens.
Answer (Mr Marcus Jones)
In September 2016, the UK Government announced that designers and architects were being invited to enter an international design competition for a striking new national Memorial commemorating the Holocaust to be constructed in Victoria Tower Gardens.
The announcement made clear that competition entrants were also being invited to incorporate designs for a possible accompanying below-ground learning centre, which would be taken forward subject to technical, financial, planning or other constraints.
