HC Deb 19 July 1977 vol 935 c492W
80. Mr. Onslow

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why it has been thought necessary to undertake complete redecoration of the Commons Court block of houses; what will be the resultant cost to public funds; and what steps he has taken to establish the cost of spring cleaning these rooms instead.

Mr. Marks

The estimated cost of redecoration of the Members' Rooms, 49 of various sizes and two lavatories, is £2,250. The rooms were decorated in non-washable emulsion paint, and the walls are badly soiled. Washing down without repainting would not be satisfactory.
