From Ms Margaret Cuddon

Sir: Instead of a 40ft bust of Winston Churchill, it would be more appropriate to construct an exact replica of the Skylon on the place where it was originally part of the South Bank exhibition for the Festival of Britain and which was destroyed on the direct orders, I believe, of Mr Churchill at the close of the exhibition.

It was a wonderful and beautiful structure, especially when lit from within at night, and it would be an inspiration to have it there to take us into the next century.

Yours faithfully,

Margaret Cuddon
