§ 98. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he is able to give the House any information as to the plans which he has had in hand for a general improvement of the ventilation in the Houses of Parliament.
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Sir Alfred Mond)
As my hon. Friend is aware, the problem of ventilation to these buildings is a most difficult one. My officers are examining it in conjunction with the officials of the National Physical Laboratory, but exhaustive tests and analysis are required, and it will necessarily be some time before a decision can be come to as to carrying out a general scheme of improvement.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that prior to the War a Committee of this House sat to consider this question and brought out a long report. Is he taking that into consideration?
§ Sir A. MOND
I am aware of the fact. All reports, and there are many of them on this subject, will be taken into consideration.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Can the National Physical Laboratory do anything with the hot air in the lower corridor?
