To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission what the cost to the public purse was of providing a square metre of office space on the parliamentary estate in 2006-07. (162487)

The average resource cost of a square metre of space on the parliamentary estate in 2006-07 was £651. This is a high-level figure covering the whole of the estate, including unusable spaces.
