HC Deb 18 February 1976 vol 905 c708W
Mr. Fairbairn

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the cost of the pictures put up in the passages and rooms of Norman Shaw North; and where they were purchased.

Mr. Armstrong

The purchase price was £1,482.48 including VAT for 58 prints; in addition, the cost of framing and incidental expenses was £500. The prints were obtained from a reputable British commercial source and I have written to the hon. and learned Member.
