§ Lord Oakeshott of Seagrove Bay asked Her Majesty's Government:
§ Whether the recent reported letting of office space at Paddington at over £40 per square foot to the British Waterways board either required or received approval from HM Treasury in accordance with paragraph 10.3 of the Lyons report. [HL3429]
§ Lord McIntosh of Haringey:
British Waterways was not required to consult HM Treasury on this matter since the office accommodation in question was required to provide local services.
