asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will detail (a) the cost to date of the cleaning of the palace of Westminster, (b) the anticipated total cost of the cleaning of the palace and (c) the expected date of the completion of this work.

Expenditure up to 30 November 1982 was £558,906. The next area to be tackled is the Clock Tower, for which the scaffolding contract has just been let. I am currently reviewing the exact timing and cost of the work required on other elevations in the light of experience so far, and I will write to my hon. Friend when that review is complete.
