The Lord Bishop of LONDON
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What are the plans for the proper care and maintenance of the pool alongside the Jewel Tower in Westminster.
§ The PARLIAMENTARY UNDERSECRETARY OF STATE, DEPARTMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT (Baroness Birk)
My right honourable friend the Secretary of State for the820WA Environment intends to continue the present arrangements whereby the pool is emptied and cleared of debris about every four years. Dirt and rubbish is usually skimmed off the surface weekly. The pool has been emptied recently so that a leak could he repaired and it will be refilled and restocked with fish shortly.
