§ MR. MITCHELL HENRY
asked, whether the First Commissioner of Works would use his best endeavours to bring about a near approximation of the number of seats in the House to the number of Members?
THE LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. LEVESON GOWER) (who replied)
said: In consequence of a representation from the Sergeant-at-Arms, the Office of Works 14 brought the subject of providing 40 additional lockers under the consideration of the Treasury, but were informed by the Lords of the Treasury that they were not prepared at present to sanction the expenditure, estimated at £250. The hon. Member for Glasgow (Mr. Mitchell Henry) has entered into a rather wider question than that of lockers, and perhaps he will give Notice.
§ MR. T. M. HEALY
asked the hon. Gentleman whether he would convey to the Treasury the information that if the Treasury did not conform to the wishes of the House the House would make it rather warm for the Treasury?
