HC Deb 21 November 1966 vol 736 cc912-3
4. Mr. Kevin McNamara

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what is the nature of the work still continuing at the stable yard at St. James's Palace; what is the total estimated cost; and whether he will consider suspending the work in view of the economic crisis.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Public Building and Works (Mr. James Boyden)

No work is going on there.

Mr. McNamara

Then can my hon. Friend state why the sum appeared in the Estimates?

Mr. Boyden

There has been a small sum of £750 under "works in progress", but that refers to the boreholes which have been completed recently.
