Departmental Buildings

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 9 March 2010

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much his Department spent on office refurbishments in each of the last 10 years. (320503)

A full PFI refurbishment of the Treasury's building was completed in 2002. The cost of any refurbishments since that date have been included in the annual unitary payment made to the PFI provider and is not separately recorded.

As a result of the introduction of a new accounting system in 2002-03, provision of information prior to that date could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
