§ Mr. Rooker
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if she will set out in the Official Report that part of the national agreement operated by her Department relating to architects' fees for buildings designed but not proceeded with in the building programme.
§ Dr. Owen
The scale of fees payable to architects in the various circumstances of particular commissions is contained in the conditions of engagement published in 1971 by the Royal Institute of British Architects and which, it was then agreed, should be applied to commissions placed by Government Departments and National Health Service authorities. Part 7 of the conditions deals with abandoned works, where fees for partial services are due commensurate with the amount of work done.
