HC Deb 04 November 1993 vol 231 cc473-4W
Mr. Cann

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is the estimated cost of the cosmetic works being done to the Whitehall frontage of his Department's main building and the works being undertaken in the car parking area to the west of the building.

Mr. Hanley

No cosmetic works are being undertaken but a works programme is in progress to improve the security of the south car park of MOD main building, at an estimated cost of £620,000. The movement of the statues and the associated works on Raleigh Green are being managed by the Department of the Environment. The total cost of this work is approximately £164,000, a proportion of which will be met by the MOD.
