HC Deb 17 March 1881 vol 259 c1248

asked the First Commissioner of Works, If arrangements can be made to retain the refreshment bar within the Lobby for Members and officers of this House?


, in reply, said, he had received many complaints on the subject referred to by the hon. Member. It was necessary, in his opinion, that a remedy should be applied, and he proposed to provide a refreshment bar for strangers in the lower waiting-hall at the foot of the great staircase. When that was done, the refreshment bar within the Lobby might be retained for the exclusive use of Members and officers of the House.
