98. Mr. Lucas
asked the Minister of Works how many persons are now employed at the headquarters of the National Savings Committee at 1, Princes Gate; and what is the actual or estimated cost of providing furniture and carpets for these offices together with the actual cost of the carpet in the Conference Room on the second floor.
§ Mr. Stokes
The headquarters of the National Savings Committee have recently moved from requisitioned property to Princes Gate, where the number employed is 178. The estimated cost of furnishing these offices to normal postwar standards is £11,500, against which should be set the cost of old furniture surrendered and fit for re-use, which is £4,750. The cost of the carpet in the Conference Room on the second floor was £235.
