HC Deb 02 August 1951 vol 491 cc256-7W
109. Wing Commander Bullus

asked the Minister of Transport what sum was authorised by his Department for alterations to the headquarters of the Railway Executive at 222, Marylebone Road.

Mr. Barnes

In April, 1947, it was proposed to convert the former Great Central Hotel into a hostel for train crews, at an estimated cost of£202,900, but in the beginning of 1948 it was decided to convert the whole building into offices for the then newly formed Railway and Road Transport Executives. The Hotels Executive are also housed in this building. The total amount authorised on the two projects since their inception is£215,880.
