Support the construction of the planned UK Holocaust Memorial

Last updated 2 weeks ago

We will support the construction of the planned UK Holocaust Memorial.

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.53

Our verdict

  • This is a promise that government will support the building of a Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre in Victoria Tower Gardens, London.
  • In November 2019, the previous government took over responsibility for deciding on the planning application from Westminster council, and in February 2020, the Housing Secretary reaffirmed the commitment to the memorial’s construction.
  • The next step will be a public inquiry into the proposals later in 2020, but the government continues to give strong backing to the planned memorial, so this policy is ‘in progress’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
