Motion allows for a review to be conducted on whether there is a need for ‘comprehensive works’

Andrea Leadsom, the leader of the House of Commons, said MPs would be asked to vote on a motion authorising the repairs to go ahead but with a review before the end of 2022 on whether there was a need for comprehensive works.
