§ Sir J. Rodgers
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what plans he has to start cleaning the outside of the Palace of Westminster and in particular the frontage of the Terrace.
§ Mr. Prentice
None at present. Much of the stonework has been renewed in recent years and areas of old stone have been brushed to remove dirt. After a few more years when new and old stone have weathered sufficiently, my Department will consider whether the overall appearance of the building would justify cleaning being carried out.
