HC Deb 02 March 1903 vol 118 c1114
*MR. REGINALD LUCAS (Portsmouth)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for North Huntingdonshire, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether, in view of the present state of the weather, he will take steps to prevent draughts of cold air being forced into the Library of the House of Commons.

MR. AILWYN FELLOWES (Huntingdonshire, Ramsey)

The First Commissioner has made inquiry on this matter, and is assured that the currents of cold air referred to by my hon. friend are not connected with the ventilating system. They are most probably forced into the rooms from the open air by the pressure of the recent heavy winds, and cannot, it is feared, in such circumstances be prevented.


I can assure my hon. friend that the draughts come from the ventilator round the bottom of the room.
