We intend to establish a Joint Committee of Parliament on the Restoration and Renewal of the Palace of Westminster. I expect this to be established before the summer recess. The Committee will be co-chaired by the Leaders of both Houses and will consider the Independent Options Appraisal Report, which was published on 18 June 2015, and related evidence and to make recommendations to both Houses on a way forward, taking account of costs, benefits, risks and potential timescales.
