§ Mr. Skinner
asked the Leader of the House what was the total outturn cost, including labour costs, of the new telephone system installed throughout the Houses of Parliament and adjoining parliamentary office buildings.
§ Mr. Biffen
The final outturn costs of the new telephone system, including labour costs, are not yet available, but the indications are that they will be within the estimated costs contained in the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Leicester, East (Mr. Bruinvels) on 26 June at column 401.
