HC Deb 18 May 1897 vol 49 c721
MR. J. W. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)

I beg to ask the Patronage Secretary to the Treasury whether, for the convenience of Members during Divisions, especially when occurring at midnight, the door on the right side of the Outer Lobby, leading directly down to the Members' Cloak Room, could be unlocked before the declaration of the numbers of the Divisions, as is done at present in the case of the door opposite leading to the Library; and whether he would consult the authorities of the House with a view to carrying this out?


I am afraid it would be difficult to adopt the suggestion of the hon. Member, but I will discuss the matter with the proper authorities.
