In addition, the House holds costing information for works done on the Speaker’s apartments as part of the Fire Safety Improvement Programme, as described above. The Fire Safety Improvement Programme is delivering a number of projects throughout the estate to ensure that Parliament is compliant with statutory regulations. The aim of the programme is to make it safer for users and reduce disruption to the business of Parliament due to fire, through compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order and Parliamentary Fire Safety Strategy.
In the case of the Speaker’s apartments, asbestos removal works were required in order to facilitate the fire safety works.
