Press Release - Parliamentarians urge Palace of Westminster to renew with wood

Parliamentarians urge Palace of Westminster to renew with wood 


As Chairman of the newly founded APPG on Timber Industries, Ian Paisley MP has written to the Leader of the House of Commons Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP urging him to consider replacing wooden structures within the House with the same material where at all possible. The Restoration and Renewal Programme is due to be announced in the Spring of 2016.

Timber industries APPG Chairman Ian Paisley MP said: “As a member of the Joint Committee on the Palace of Westminster I have already engaged in the lively discussion about the restoration and renovation of the Palace of Westminster. Indeed, whichever path we decide to take with regard to the renovation, be it a full-scale move for six years, or even a gradual approach over some 30 years, this decision will inevitably be of great cost to the tax payer. It is therefore essential that we aim for an efficient and cost-effective renovation which upholds the history and legacy of the Palace.”
