HC Deb 29 November 1983 vol 49 cc449-50W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will state the total cost of the refurbishment of Liverpool Lime street railway station.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

The refurbishment works to Lime street station being funded through the urban programme are estimated to cost £5.4 million. Other works within the station—for example, the cleaning of the train hall roof—are being carried out by British Rail at its own expense. Additionally, the cost of refurbishing Lime street chambers, the largely disused building adjoining the station, is to be met by a private developer, Merseyside (Developments) Ltd.
