§ MR. DUNCOMBE (Cumberland, Egremont)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether it is possible to provide a room in the Palace of Westminster, other than the Members' Lobby, where honourable Members can convey their views to representatives of the Press?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS-DOUGLAS, Kent, St. Augustine's)
No, Sir; I am afraid there is no vacant room in the House which I can devote to the purpose suggested bf my honourable Friend.
§ MR. DUNCOMBE
Arising out of that answer, may I ask the First Commissioner of Works whether he will consider the desirability of excluding representatives of the Press from the Members' Lobby?
