HC Deb 08 March 1911 vol 22 cc1205-6

asked the right hon. Member for the Epping Division, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, if he will consider the possibility of arranging that one of the refreshment rooms, at which refreshments may be obtained for women during the hours of six till ten, may be set apart for the sale of light refreshments and not dinners, in order that those Members and their friends who dine at midday may not be obliged to incur the extra expense of dinner or go without refreshment of any kind?


The refreshment rooms already available are frequently overcrowded of a night. Tea and light refreshments are served in the Terrace rooms until 6.30. These facilities have up till the present time met all the demands of Members and visitors here; but I will gladly see if it is possible to meet the wishes of the hon. Member and communicate with him privately later on upon the subject.
