HC Deb 19 November 1996 vol 285 c468W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Chairman of the Accommodation and Works Committee, pursuant to his answer of 31 October,Official Report, column 221, if he will list the 35 oil paintings that have been restored since July in the House, indicating the restoration cost of each painting. [4706]

Sir Raymond Powell

The paintings are those situated in the Strangers and Members Dining Rooms, the Pugin Room, the Smoking Room and the Tea Room. It is not possible to give the cost of restoring each painting separately since the work was done under a single sum contract.
