HC Deb 20 June 1912 vol 39 c1827
23. Sir J. D. REES

asked the hon. Member for St. George' s-in-the-East, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether electric light will be substituted for gas in the Debating Chamber before the House can make a practical trial of the effect of the former illuminant acting from the roof upon the eyes of Members?

Sir J. D. REES

Does the hon. Gentleman think this is quite fair to hon. Members?
