HC Deb 09 August 1904 vol 139 c1564
MR. BRIGG (Yorkshire, W.R., Keighley)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for Chorley, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, if, during the coming Parliamentary vacation, he will arrange for the enlargement of the Members' Lobby Post Office; and, also, will have a series of pigeon-holes, one for each Member, placed in sight of the windows in such a position that Members may, without asking an attendant, see if there are any letters or documents in his pigeon-hole, and thus save the trouble of the attendants looking over bundles of unsorted Papers while the Member waits.

LORD BALCARRES (Lancashire, Chorley)

The question of further accommodation for the Members' Lobby Post Office has been often considered, but no enlargement is practicable, and there is absolutely no space for a range of 670 pigeon-holes. Some relief might he possible if hon. Members would use the Central Lobby Post Office for a greater portion of their telegraphic business; the accommodation there has recently been much improved.
