Commitment to the restoration of Waterloo…


It was fantastic to see George Osborne’s commitment to the restoration of the Waterloo battlefield in time for 2015. The pledge was made in his “Spending Round 2013” statement to Parliament in which Osborne stated:

“And while we’re at it, we’ll make sure the site of the Battle of Waterloo is restored in time for the 200th anniversary, to commemorate those who died there and to celebrate a great victory of coalition forces over a discredited former regime that had impoverished millions.”
