HC Deb 31 May 1888 vol 326 cc749-50
MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)

asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether, seeing that the entrance to the St. Stephen's Chapel is through the Members' Cloak Room, there is any reason why hon. Members and their friends should not have the privilege of visiting and showing to their friends this interesting and beautiful portion of the Parliament House; and, whether he will make arrangements to enable them to do so?


, in reply, said, that he had been informed by the Home Secretary that, after consultation with the Police Authorities, he saw no objection to Members and their friends passing through the Members' Cloak Room to St. Stephen's Chapel. The same Regulations would be put in force as formerly—namely, that application should be made by Members to Mr. Cole, an officer of the House stationed in the Cloak Room, for the key of the gate leading to the crypt; but as regarded entrance into the crypt, the party would have to be attended by an officer of the House.
