asked the Minister of Pensions what is the cost of the upkeep of the Clifton Down Hotel, Bristol, occupied by the Ministry, and the amount of wages paid to the staff: and if he will consider whether, in the interests of economy, some more suitable building might be taken for their use?

I am informed by my Noble Friend the First Commissioner of Works that the annual expenditure against the Public Buildings Vote in respect of the Clifton Down Hotel is approximately £3,200; the salaries and wages of the Pensions staff employed in that building amount to £93,000 approximately per annum. If the hon. and gallant Member can suggest a more economical arrangement for housing the Pensions staffs in Bristol, I shall be glad to consider any scheme in conjunction with the First Commissioner of Works.
