A recent article from the RICS, considers the potential funding required to bring the houses of parliament back to their natural beauty. Perhaps more innovative solutions are required for the funding rather than expect the tax payer to foot the bill? Perhaps renaming the houses of parliament for sponsorship, like some of our football stadiums is a stretch too far, but I do believe there needs to be a radical rethink on funding. Without a doubt we cannot lose one of our natural treasures, but again under investment in maintenance of properties will always catch up.....eventually.
