§ Mr. Blaker
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what was the cost to United Kingdom public funds of the construction of the barracks at Seria, Brunei; and what part of the cost was paid by the Government of Brunei.
§ Mr. Prentice
Buildings occupied as barracks and married quarters at Seria, Brunei, were for the most part existing premises hired at Brunei Government expense. Some new construction and considerable rehabilitation was necessary at a cost of about £150,000 borne by the Brunei Government. The cost to United Kingdom public funds was about £20,000 for equipment such as refrigerators and fans.
