BBC News - Big Ben: Public can fund Brexit Day bongs, says PMI'd be interested to know why it costs the Government £500,000 to have some scaffolding erected.
So soon after bonging on New Years Eve. Its a pity this wasn't planned for. Cost seems excessive.Costs for this work, alongside testing and ringing the bell, were estimated at approximately £120,000.
