§ 42. Sir HARRY BRITTAIN
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he will give instructions for arrangments to be made in Palace Yard for the staff of the Houses of Parliament to view the Peace procession on Saturday next?
§ Sir A. MOND
I regret that, owing to the height of the stand that would be required, the lack of labour and material, and the short time available, I am unable to adopt this suggestion, and in any case I could not provide a stand for the staff in question at the public expense.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Is the right hon. Gentleman prepared to reserve for the staff spaces in Bridge Street, as has been done, I understand, on more than one occasion at the opening of Parliament?
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Are there not some rooms about the precincts of the House that could be allocated?
