HC Deb 15 November 1932 vol 270 c953W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the full cost to the Imperial Exchequer of the Northern Ireland Parliament Buildings at Belfast; the names of the contractors; and the respective amounts paid to them?


It is estimated that the total sum to be provided by the British Exchequer in accordance with Section 34 of the Government of Ireland Act, 1920, for the cost of the Parliament Buildings (including the site) for Northern Ireland is £1,150,000. A complete list of the contractors would be very long and I am informed that its compilation would involve a disproportionate amount of time and labour. The main building contract (involving approximately £625,000) was let to Messrs. Stewart & Partners, Limited, of London and Belfast. None of the other contracts exceeded £50,000.
