Subject: Big Ben: Cost of repairing Elizabeth Tower rises by £18.6m

Written By: Philip Eno on 02/13/20 at 11:04 am

The cost of repairing the Elizabeth Tower, which houses the famous Big Ben bell, has risen by £18.6m following the discovery of bomb damage and asbestos. The need for more money was only discovered during a survey of the 177-year-old structure in central London. The House of Commons Commission said it was "extremely disappointed" that the cost had risen to £79.7m. The new budget will have to be approved by the accounting officers of the Houses of Parliament.
