asked the Minister of Works whether he is aware that the Permanent Building Society have been granted a licence to spend a substantial sum of money in altering premises in Hal-ford Street, Leicester; on what grounds the work was considered necessary; and whether, in view of the necessity of avoiding all unnecessary building work at the present time, he will investigate the circumstances in which the licence was given.

The premises were occupied for six years by the Civil Defence Authority and are being converted for use as offices by the Co-operative Permanent Building Society who have to find new premises. The local authority agreed to the issue of a licence and most of the work is being carried out by specialist craftsmen.
