Falling Stones (2019)


Could you please tell me how many recorded stone falls have there been at the Palace of Westminster during the last 10 years?

Could you please give me the figures broken down for each calendar year since 2009 and the total in 2019 so far?




Please note that the House of Commons and House of Lords are separate public authorities for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act. However, the information you have requested is held bicamerally and so our response covers falling masonry across the whole of the parliamentary estate.

This information is held by the House of Commons. 

The numbers of all recorded incidents of falling masonry between 1 January 2009 & 24 May 2019
