HC Deb 01 July 1971 vol 820 cc192-3W
Mr. Michael Cocks

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what was the original estimated cost and what is the present estimated cost of all external architectural embellishments on the front elevation of the new casualty and out-patient department at Bristol Royal Infirmary overlooking Upper Maudlin Street.

Mr. Alison

No such embellishments were included in the original and current estimated costs given in my reply to the hon. Member on 14th May, 1971. The further report from the Board of Governors referred to in my reply to the hon. Member on 15th June, 1971, will show whether any part of the additional expenditure currently under consideration is attributable to work which might be considered to be for aesthetic purposes—[Vol. 817, c.180; Vol. 819, c. 55.]
