§ MR. SPENCER
asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether, having regard to the fogs that have prevailed, he would take into consideration the advisability of having an electric instead of a gaslight in the Clock Tower?
§ MR. SHAW LEFEVRE,
in reply, said, that an experiment was made some 29 time ago with the electric light at the House, with a result which was well known to them all. As the change suggested would involve some expense, and as experiments were still being made, he did not think it would be worth while to proceed with the alteration till the whole question of lighting the Houses of Parliament came up for consideration.
§ MR. SHAW LEFEVRE
said, that was a moot point; but he thought the general belief was that the electric light was seen best in foggy weather.
