'Consensus' that Notre-Dame spire should be rebuilt as it was: French minister

PARIS (AFP) – There is a “large consensus” that the spire of the fire-damaged Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris should be rebuilt as it was, France’s new culture minister said on Thursday (July 9).

Roselyne Bachelot told French radio that “there was a large consensus in public opinion and among those deciding” the issue for the spire to be rebuilt.

Her comments came hours before a commission that is set to rule on the thorny question was due to meet.
