HL Deb 08 February 1995 vol 561 c14WA
Lord Beaumont of Whitley

asked the Chairman of Committees:

When the moat abutting 6 and 7 Old Palace Yard, on the Parliamentary Estate, is to be filled with water and stocked with fish, or cleaned, or both.

The Chairman of Committees (Lord Boston of Faversham)

The moat in question abuts the Jewel Tower, which is in the care of English Heritage. I understand that English Heritage has plans to improve the Jewel Tower's surroundings and its presentation to visitors; but no details are yet available.
