Its normal to change it at the same time but I would not assume the clutch is included, so ask what is included for the price. At £450(+vat) I would say its at the very bottom of the range I would expect. Some other costs quoted on AO go to £650 for clutch and slave cylinder. I guess the cost of parts for the clutch alone is about £150 - not worth leaving the old clutch in, as the gearbox has to come off anyway..
In the case of 147 Twin Spark engines the slave cylinder is inside the clutch housing so unless the clutch is very new and the slave cylinder and has not leaked damaging the clutch it should be changed.
