PRESS RELEASE: SAVE condemns plans to demolish historic building as 'state sponsored vandalism'

SAVE Britain's Heritage has condemned plans to demolish a historic building on Whitehall as "state sponsored vandalism of the first order". Richmond House, the former department of health HQ in central London is set to be flattened, apart from the front facade, to make way for a temporary House of Commons under plans unveiled today by the Restoration and Renewal Programme. The temporary chamber would be used for just 7-8 years while the neighbouring Palace of Westminster is refurbished.
