Piers Gough is absolutely right -- Richmond House is an exquisite building in a very good state. Deathmasking it would disconnect the street elevation from its seldom seen but wonderful interior, as its current, commensurate scale would have to be drastically enlarged to fit in not only a full-size replica of the Commons chamber, but also the lobbies. That part of the programme also show how fatuous the claims of a permanent legacy made by Northern Estate Programme are. The replica chamber would have to demolished after the Commons moves back to the Palace of Westminster. There will be no legacy, just irresponsible waste.
