Does my hon. Friend mean that this sum does not include any payment made to personnel engaged by the constructional engineers and employed at the site under their direction?

The sum quoted is the estimated expenditure upon buildings and ancillary services for which the consulting engineers are responsible. It excludes the cost of land and of process machinery installed in the premises.

Does that include the cost of any compensation paid for disturbance?
