HC Deb 10 December 1888 vol 331 c1611
MR. H. GARDNER (Essex, Saffron Walden)

asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether the apparatus which had been mentioned on a previous occasion for filtering the foggy atmosphere outside the House had been in operation during that afternoon?


We have not neglected so favourable an opportunity as that which has been afforded to-day of making the experiment; and I think it has been a partial, though not a complete, success. The fact is, the House was quite clear in the earlier part of the day of fog; but when the House assembled Members coming down brought the fog with them. However, we are going to test the experiment further; and I hope it may be more successful on another occasion.
