A meeting of Westminster Council’s planning committee unanimously rejected the statue, which was to be placed in Parliament Square. The one and a half-times life-size statue was to feature Baroness Thatcher dressed in her peers’ robes. But councillors agreed that this did not reflect her importance in history as a Prime Minister. The meeting also agreed that the statue should first receive approval from the Thatcher family before going ahead.
