HC Deb 28 May 1968 vol 765 cc191-2W
43. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Health if he will seek to reach an agreement with the professional bodies con- cerned, that where their scales of fees are based on the total cost of the project, that in the case of hospital building and improvements, the fees shall be limited to the estimate made at the outset of the project in the event of a long delay in starting building leading to an increase in total costs.

Mr. K. Robinson

The Report of the National Board for Prices and Incomes on architect's fees which will be published very shortly, will give an opportunity for this to be considered.
