answer text <ol><li><p>The Sovereign has received no direct benefit from bona vacantia since 1988. The Privy purse benefited by £339k in 1984/85, £468k in 1985/86, £418k in 1986/87 and £497k in 1987/88.</p></li></ol><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Since 1988 proceeds from bona vacantia have been used to pay late claims and the balance has been divided between three charities established to receive these funds which are the Duchy of Lancaster Benevolent Fund (supporting charities within the County Palatine or where the Duchy has landed or historical interests in England and Wales), the Jubilee Trust (which supports The Queen's Chapel of the Savoy and other heritage buildings owned by the Duchy) and the Duke of Lancaster Housing Trust (which provides rural affordable housing).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>b). The Duchy has not kept a record of any specific bequests in favour of the Duchy in the course of the last 30 years.

The conclusion was that the clear roof and ground areas fall substantially short of the space required for viable arrays and the necessity of obtaining Listed Building Consent represents a formidable barrier.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>1 Horse Guards Road, London SW1, is the only building on the HM Treasury estate over which the department has the necessary control of the structure and services to consider improving energy efficiency by the provision of further insulation. However, as the building is Grade 2* listed, options for doing this are very limited.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The building was totally refurbished in 2002 under a PFI agreement and insulation in the structure was incorporated to the standard required at the time. It has solid walls and a flat roof structure, so retro-fitting further insulation would be both very expensive and disruptive to the business of the five Government departments and 10 ministers that operate from the building.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The PFI partner and FM provider concentrate on ensuring insulation to services are well-maintained and renewed when necessary. For example, the hot and cold pipework on the roof area have recently been reinsulated.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
