Response

  1. How much was spent designing and installing the "vaping areas" on the parliamentary estate.
    The House of Commons holds this information. The only costs involved in setting up these areas relate to floor painting and signage. The specific costs pertaining to painting and signage of the vaping areas cannot be disaggregated, on our financial systems, from similar costs in other areas of the parliamentary estate, but we estimate the cost was in the region of £100 including VAT.
  2. How many vaping areas are there?
    The House holds this information. Two areas, one in the House of Lords, and one in the House of Commons, have been designated as vaping areas.
  3. How much will be spent per month maintaining these areas?
    There are no costs in relation to maintaining these areas so the House of Commons does not hold any information.
