HC Deb 03 July 1986 vol 100 c596W
Mr. MacKenzie

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make it his policy to include in new or renegotiated leases for shops let by his Department near to the Palace of Westminster provisions relating to the quality and price of goods offered or exposed for sale and primarily intended for purchase by tourists: and if he will make a statement.

Sir George Young

It is intended to include provision for shops at ground floor level of the Bridge street frontage of the prospective redevelopment of that area. I have yet to consider on what conditions leases for these premises will be offered. I shall consult the Services Committee about the leasing arrangements in due course.
