Master’s Lodge


During the last twelve months and as a result of the occupation of the
Master’s Lodge by a new Master, Professor Sir Alan Fersht, the Lodge has
been refurbished, as is usual between Masters.  This has resulted in an
unusual, once every five years, high level of expenditure.  The
refurbishment costs came to £25,361.13, plus £2,221.53 for decoration
materials.  Running costs for the year including utilities and laundry
came to £6,897.80.


I hope this answers your question.  If you are dissatisfied with this
reply then you may seek an internal review of it by an officer of the
College not party to this reply.  You also have a right to apply to the
Information Commissioner under section 50 of the Act.
