§ MR. STUART-WORTLEY (Sheffield, Hallam)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether, in the arrangements consequent upon the vacation of Sir Reginald Palgrave's quarters, he will contrive that the office for the issue of orders of admission to strangers may be placed at a less inconvenient distance from the place where strangers present themselves to seek such orders.
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS DOUGLAS, Kent, St. Augustine's)
No, Sir, I am afraid I cannot do so. I would point out to my right hon. friend that orders of admission to strangers are issued by Mr. Speaker's Secretary, and their issue from a separate office would be very inconvenient; further, that the remedy suggested would only apply before 4.45 o'clock, when orders of admission are granted by the Serjeant-at-Arms.
