As advertised in the summer Estates Work exhibition in Portcullis House, the purpose of the scaffolding both inside and outside of the North Wall in Westminster Hall is three-fold:

to carry out conservation (cleaning and repair) works to the stone work of the North Wall and timber roof next to the North Wall; to carry out conservation (cleaning and repair) works to the North window tracery; and to install HM the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Window.

The cost of these works, which are part of a wider Westminster Hall programme, is about £400,000 including VAT.
