HC Deb 14 April 1967 vol 744 c269W
Mr. Eyre

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works on what date a lease was taken by his Department of premises at Fountain Court, Steelhouse Lane, in the city of Birmingham; what is the amount of rent payable to date; what was the cost of fitting out offices upon the premises and the length of time taken in carrying out such work; and what is the date from which the premises will be occupied and rates payable.

Mr. Prentice

The lease was formally completed in February, 1966, following an agreement in March, 1965. Work to prepare the premises for occupation, costing about £10,000, has been completed since that date. It is not the Ministry's practice to disclose rents. The offices are due to be occupied next week.
