§ Mr. Guy Barnett
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement outlining his policy for the future use of Palace Chambers in Bridge Street.
§ Sir George Young
Palace Chambers is one of the properties on the Bridge Street site acquired in the 1960s for a new parliamentary building. It is currently partly occupied by civil servants and partly let to commercial tenants. Pending a decision on redevelopment, it will continue to be used for these or similar purposes.
