AHMM director defends demolition plans
AHMM director Paul Monaghan has defended the controversial proposal to demolish all but the façade of listed Richmond House to accommodate a temporary Commons debating chamber.

“We have made the piece that most people are interested in the centrepiece of the new building,” he said, defending the proposals against criticism from opponents.
