HC Deb 28 February 1947 vol 433 cc344-5W
Mr. T. J. Brooks

asked the Minister of Works if a licence had to be obtained to decorate and paint the inside of the premises now used by the National Coal Board; and for what amount.

Mr. Shinwell

I have been asked to reply. If my hon. Friend will let me know which premises he has in mind I will inquire whether licences have been issued by any Government Department.

Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the amount of money involved in licences granted for recent works at Sherwood Lodge, near Nottingham, regional offices of the National Coal Board.

Mr. Shinwell

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Cambridge University (Mr. Symonds) on 20th February.
