asked the Minister of Works how many man-hours have lately been spent in structural or decorative work at the Argentine Embassy, London; whether a licence was issued for this work, and for what sum; and for what purpose the work was undertaken.
No licence has been granted for work at the Argentine Embassy, 9, Wilton Crescent, S.W.I, since October, 1946, when a licence for £112 was issued for essential decorations and minor repairs to four rooms. This work was completed in 1946.
Can my right hon. Friend say whether any other work has been done more recently without the issue of a licence?
To my mind nothing of the kind has taken place.
