HC Deb 05 December 1972 vol 847 cc376-7W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment in what respects the winning design for the proposed parliamentary building does not comply with the requirements or conditions laid down in the competition specifications.

Mr. Channon

The Select Committee on House of Commons (Services) did not completely share the view of the assessors that the winning design did not conflict with the conditions of the competition in respect of security. Apart from this it appears to have been satisfied that the assessors had properly discharged their duty.
