The Government remains committed to supporting the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham (LBHF) in up to one third of the costs of the project. However, the Government cannot commit specific sums of money until LBHF completes and submits a business case, clearly setting out the engineering options and their costs, for each stage of the repairs. These business cases, which must conform to the Government’s Green Book standards, are under development by LBHF and the Government eagerly awaits their completion.
