HC Deb 06 December 1911 vol 32 c1403

asked the hon. Member for Southampton, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether, in view of the increasing interest shown by the public in the Debates of this House, and the number of persons from all parts of the Empire attending in the Galleries, he will cause arrangements to be made for the installation of indicators in convenient positions to inform strangers of the names of speakers, as is done for the convenience of Members themselves in the Libraries and other rooms within the precincts of the House?

The TREASURER of the HOUSEHOLD (Mr. Dudley Ward)

The First Commissioner regrets that, with the funds at his disposal, he will not be able to afford the convenience desired.
