Departmental Buildings

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 20 January 2009

To ask the Minister for Women and Equality how much has been spent on (a) maintaining, (b) decorating and (c) otherwise improving departmental buildings by the Government Equalities Office since its inception; how much has been spent on wallpaper; and what plans there are for further spending on departmental decoration. (248064)

The Government Equalities Office leases its accommodation from Communities and Local Government and the Cabinet Office, who are responsible for any maintenance, decoration and improvements. GEO has not spent any money directly on these areas, and none on wallpaper. The GEO has no plans to spend any money on departmental decoration and the leases it has would not, in any case, permit this.
