HC Deb 20 January 1902 vol 101 c315
MR. LOUIS SINCLAIR (Essex, Romford)

I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works, whether he will state by whose orders parts of the lobbies and corridors of the Houses of Parliament were painted; whether this stonework was ever painted before; and whether he will consider the advisability of having this paint removed, and the stone carefully bleached and pumiced.


These corridors have been painted for many years, and the painting was recently renewed in the ordinary course. This treatment is certainly not a happy one, and I will consider whether some other process cannot be adopted.
