HC Deb 26 March 1964 vol 692 c169W
Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will give details of how the architects' fee of £525,000 for the new Dundee teaching hospital is calculated; and how many architects and their assistants are at present employed on the hospital.

Mr. Noble

The fee equals 5 per cent. of the cost of the work, currently estimated at £10,540,000, and is based on the appropriate scale published by the Royal Institute of British Architects. The precise number of staff employed at any time is the concern of the architect.
