§ 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.
