Does the Leader of the House accept that there is increasing concern about the proposal by the Lord Chancellor's Department to gut the interior of Middlesex guildhall, which is one of the finest examples of Edwardian secular architecture in London, and also an important part of London's historic heritage as the former home of the Middlesex county council, to make way for the venue for the new Supreme Court? Will he undertake that the Lord Chancellor's Department will not proceed with plans to rip out the interior within two and a half weeks of the court's closure on 30 March, and will take no action until the Constitutional Affairs Committee has held its proposed inquiry into the matter or there has been a debate in Government time?
