§ *MR. ARTHUR LEE (Hampshire, Fareham)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether he could undertake that on any future occasion when circumstances may require that Members of this House should be kept up all night the normal temperature of the House should be kept up also.
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
I can assure my hon. friend that every care shall be taken to keep up the normal temperature of the House throughout the night, if, unfortunately, we should again have to undergo the experience of an all-night sitting. The records taken, which I shall be pleased to let my hon. friend see, show that the temperature was very evenly maintained throughout the early hours of Friday last.
