Departmental Buildings

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 5 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what fees were paid to private contractors for the operation and maintenance of his Department's buildings in the last 12 month period for which figures are available. (187594)

The Department pays an all-inclusive unitary charge under the PRIME PFI contract to its private sector partner Land Securities Trillium (LST) for the provision of fully serviced accommodation. This fully inclusive unitary charge provides for payments to private contractors for the operation and maintenance of the buildings we occupy and we are unable to separately identify the costs attributable to this element of the PFI contract.
