House of Commons: Buildings

Volume 506: debated on Monday 22 February 2010

To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission when the carpets in the Chamber and the division lobbies were last replaced; by what means carpets removed were disposed of; and whether the House of Commons Commission has made a recent estimate of the cost of replacing those carpets. (316939)

The carpets in the Commons Chamber and Division Lobbies were last replaced in 1995; there is no record of the disposal method. The cost of replacing the carpets now is some £62,000, including fitting and VAT. The old carpet will be recycled into biofuel.
