§ 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?
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)
The answer is in the negative.
§ Sir J. D. REES
Does the hon. Gentleman think this is quite fair to hon. Members?
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN
I said no permanent change will be effected until the experiment has been made. The First Commissioner is quite willing to change his views should it appear to be necessary.
