HC Deb 27 November 1912 vol 44 c1268

asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether the roofing of Westminster Hall is in need of repair; and, if so, whether the First Commissioner proposes to give attention to this matter at an early date?

Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)

A thorough inspection of the roof of Westminster Hall is urgently needed, and the First Commissioner proposes at once to erect scaffolding in order to see what repairs may be necessary.
