Pugin was Of French/Irish lineage finally became a Roman Catholic again; was married three times due to death; and is thought to have died cos of syphilis (caught - no pun intended - when young).

He designed most of the, what is known as 'the mother of all parliaments - dont mention the cost (how much -when finally finished).

By a labour goverment not long after the second world war ended.
The treasury is the political side of UK money.
The BofE has seen may changes over time.
In recent times the rolls of the BofE and the treasury were supposed to be officially separated.
Due to deregulation any distinction between the two has become even more blurred; in reality.
