Westminster Hall Cafeteria has been closed since December 2000 while being converted into new visitor facilities, including a new café, lavatories and a lift for disabled access to the Grand Committee Room and other areas. No costs were therefore incurred after that date.
There was no capital expenditure on the Westminster Hall Cafeteria in the two years before its closure.
During the nine months April to December 2000, the actual gross running cost was £197,000; after a contribution from sales of £85,000, the net running cost for 2000–01 was £112,000.
For the year April 1999 to March 2000, the actual gross running cost was £318,000; after a contribution from sales of £132,000, the net running cost was £186,000.
Payroll budgets are not disaggregated, and so the budgeted gross and net annual running costs are not available.
