60. Miss LEE
asked the First Commissioner of Works the amount spent on repairing the buildings of the Houses of Parliament since May, 1912; the expenditure since May, 1929; and the estimates of proposed further expenditure on repairs during the next year?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Mr. Lansbury)
I assume that my hon. Friend refers to expenditure on repairing the stonework. The total expenditure up to 31st March last on this service amounted to £61,475; of which £26,896 was expended during the financial year ending on that date. The estimated expenditure for the present financial year is £31,200.
