House of Lords: Millbank Island Site

Volume 700: debated on Thursday 24 April 2008

At its meeting on 22 April, the House Committee reviewed the development of the Millbank island site refurbishment project and the associated project to decant the occupants of 2 Millbank during the refurbishment. The committee agreed to align the timetable for the island site refurbishment with the availability of additional accommodation in the Palace of Westminster following the departure of the Law Lords in autumn 2009. Commencement of the island site refurbishment works will now be scheduled for autumn 2009. Aligning the island site refurbishment timetable with the Law Lords’ departure in this way will enable the offices vacated by the Law Lords to be available for Members currently occupying offices in 2 Millbank for the duration of the refurbishment works.
