Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will give a detailed breakdown of the figure of about £28,000 recently given as the cost of erecting a new canopy over the Members' Entrance in New Palace Yard under the following headings: (a) cost of aluminium, (b) fabrication of aluminium, (c) erection of aluminium, (d) cost of glass, (e) cutting of glass, (f) fitting of glass, (g) cost of stone work, (h) fabrication of stone work, (i) laying of stone work, (j) cost of electrical fittings, (k) installation of electrical fittings, and (l) other sundry costs specifying any amount in excess of £100 in detail.

Mr. Armstrong

No. To publish such details would be a breach of normal commercial practice. I would refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer given to my hon. Friend the Member for Newham, South (Mr. Spearing) on 19th February 1976.—[Vol. 905, c.792.]
