Departmental Buildings

Volume 502: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how much his Department spent on works and refurbishment to offices allocated to Ministers in his Department’s buildings in the last 12 months. (305693)

BIS has spent just under £154,000 on works on office space for Ministers and their private offices in the last 12 months. Most of this activity resulted from closing down ministerial and support offices in DIUS’s Kingsgate House office and moving them to 1 Victoria Street upon creation of BIS, with the consequent need to reorganise accommodation in 1 Victoria Street. The merger will save money in the longer term.
