To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, if he will list all the correspondence and communication he or his officials have had with the officers of the Learned Societies at Burlington House since June 2020.
13 April 2021
Ministers and officials are in frequent contact with the Learned Societies.
The Learned societies pay discounted rent on new Burlington House, currently 30% of the market rate, in line with the agreement they reached with the then Government in 2006. The current arrangement would not see them pay market rent until 2085, however the Government is sympathetic to their position and is working with them to find a solution.
