§ Captain Kerby
asked the Lord Privy Seal what has been the total cost to date of the Foreign Office establishment at Wiston House, Steyning, Sussex, since it commenced; and how much of this sum represents rent.
§ Mr. Godber
Since December, 1950, when the Wilton Park Conference Centre moved to Wiston House the total net cost has been £270,000. Approximately £16,000 of this sum represented payments to the lessor of rent and maintenance charges for the upkeep of furniture and the grounds.
