§ Mr. Robert Cooke
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works (1) what is the area of office accommodation now occupied by the Land Commission in Bristol;
(2) what was the capital cost of the building now occupied by the Land Commission in Bristol and what moneys have been expended on the building since its acquisition; and what is the annual cost of maintaining and servicing the building.
§ Mr. Prentice
The Land Commission occupies about 17,500 square feet or rather over half the building in question, which the Ministry purchased in 1950 for £48,500. About £5,500 has been spent on works services for the Land Commission's occupation. The annual cost of maintaining and servicing its part of the building is about £12,000.
