§ 36. Mr. Greville Janner
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what consideration he has given to the 459W cleaning of the Clock Tower; how much he estimates it would now cost; and what he estimates the cost of doing so in five years' time will be.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
A survey of the exterior of the Palace—including the Clock Tower—is to be undertaken shortly. The cost of cleaning and stone restoration, based on a revaluation of the estimates prepared in 1973, would be approximately £660,000. The future cost cannot be estimated.
