Restoration and Renewal Recall


The Committee is recalling senior Parliamentary officials including the clerks of both Houses and the Chief Executives of the Restoration and Renewal Delivery Authority and Sponsor Body, to answer questions on the next steps in the programme. This follows the decision to abolish the Sponsor Body and reopen exploration of options for the works in 2022.

The Committee has previously reported on the failures of transparency and “wasteful, nugatory spending” in the programme, and expressed serious concern about ongoing risks and hazards in the deteriorating UNESCO World Heritage Site.

If you have new evidence on the Restoration and Renewal programme in Parliament please submit it here by 6pm on Monday 23 January.

Please have a look at the requirements for written evidence submissions and note the Committee cannot accept material as evidence that has been published elsewhere.

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Monday 23 January 2023.
