Great Scotland Yard

Volume 713: debated on Tuesday 27 October 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord Hunt of Kings Heath on 5 October (WA 484), when they intend to restore 3–5 Great Scotland Yard so that it is fit for occupation; and how much they expect that work to cost. [HL5728]

In view of the current state of repair and structural integrity of 3-5 Great Scotland Yard, the Crown Estate, which owns the building, believes that occupation could only be achieved through a redevelopment.

However, given the current state of the property market, the potential end use of a redevelopment, the options for financing it and the associated costs all remain currently under review and cannot be quantified at present.
