  2. Who paid for it?
    This information is held by the House of Commons. The project was paid for out of the existing budget for UK Parliament Week. 
  3. How much did it cost?
    This information is held by the House of Commons. The total cost of producing the Lego model was £18,545.
  4. Who made it?
