§ MR. HENRY H. FOWLER (Wolverhampton, E.)
asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether he will place some additional furniture in the Reading Room, so that the newspapers may be arranged in a convenient and available manner for the use of the Members of the House?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER (Mr. PLUNKET) (Dublin University)
Yes, Sir; I will endeavour to see whether better arrangements cannot be made in the Reading Room.
§ MR. ADDISON (Ashton-under-Lyne)
asked, whether it might not be possible to get a better newspaper room altogether; and, also, whether the First Commissioner could not cause a more adequate supply of newspapers, particularly French and Belgian newspapers, to be procured?
§ MR. PLUNKET
The supply of newspapers does not come within my Department. I should like to see a better Reading Room; but I am afraid it is not possible to obtain one, considering the accommodation of the building.
