HC Deb 26 March 1907 vol 171 c1659

I beg to ask the hon. Member for Mid-Derbyshire, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, how long the female attendant was on duty at the staff bar in the House during the sitting of Wednesday-Thursday, and what extra pay she received for her services.

SIR J. A. JACOBY (Derbyshire, Mid.)

In reply to the hon. Member there are two female attendants in the staff bar. The female attendant was relieved from duty on Thursday morning at 9 o'clock, and will receive two days extra pay. The all-night sitting of the House puts a great strain on the Kitchen Committee. The manager is instructed to work the staff in sections, and relieve them once or twice during the sitting.
