§ 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?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER (Mr. PLUNKET) (Dublin University)
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.
