How much have indoor plants & flowers cost House of Commons…

It seems nearly £250,000 in recent years, according to figures released under freedom of information rules.

Here’s the breakdown:
2009/10 £65,167
2010/11 £60,767
2011/12 £84,629
2012/13 £38,249
2013/14 £474

The release from the Commons’ authorities also makes clear the rules changed in 2012, impacting on the cost.

It states: “A new policy took effect in August 2012 which ensures that no public money is spent on flower displays in the House of Commons with the single exception of State Occasions.”
