Admiralty House

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 10 October 2006

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what the cost to public funds of his official residence in Admiralty house was in 2004-05. (83225)

The operation of Admiralty house is covered by a single facilities management contract. It is not possible to separately identify the actual costs of my flat from those of the building as a whole. However, for internal accounting purposes, costs are apportioned on the basis of the floor area of my flat as a proportion of the whole (at 20.7 per cent.). Figures for 2004-05 are already in the public domain.

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister whether his flat in Admiralty house has ancillary staff paid for from public funds; and what the (a) notional monthly market rent and (b) estimated capital value of the flat is. (89785)

I refer the hon. Member to the answers given to the right hon. Member for Maidenhead (Mrs. May) on 19 June 2006, Official Report, column 1615W, and the hon. Member for Meriden (Mrs. Spelman) on 25 July 2006, Official Report, column 1636W.
