HC Deb 08 May 1951 vol 487 c1743
22. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Minister of Works what is the estimated cost of renovating the House of Lords.

Mr. G. Brown

£32,500, Sir.

Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

Can my right hon. Friend say how much of this cost will be attributed to what the Press said was the need for fumigating the place?

Mr. Hughes

How much softwood is going to be installed in this place? How does the expenditure compare with that on the Hyde Park Lido?
