Sir: It strikes me that the redevelopment of Paternoster Square needs a special feature to focus attention and make it a worthy site for tourists to visit. A source of interest would be created by the erection of a tower clock comparable in style to the clock in St Mark's Square in Venice.
Twelve ex-prime ministers' statuettes, armed with a hammer, would rotate to strike the time. In the case of Mrs Thatcher the hammer would be dispensed with and a handbag substituted instead.
