asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when No. 1 Carlton Gardens became vacant; what repairs and alterations have taken place and at what cost; when occupancy was resumed and by whom; and what action he is taking to save public funds in respect of some of these costs.

No. 1 Carlton Gardens became vacant in March 1974. Extensive repairs and maintenance to the whole building were carried out between January 1975 and April 1976 at a cost of £215,000. The State rooms were reoccupied in April 1976 and are used mainly by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office but the residential accommodation, normally the official residence of the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, is vacant.
