HC Deb 16 July 1924 vol 176 cc365-6

asked the First Commissioner of Works if he will arrange for a small brass plate to be affixed to the House of Commons table which was rescued from the fire of 16th October, 1834, and which at present stands in one of the Libraries; whether he will cause a brief history of this interesting table to be inscribed on the plate; and whether the names of illustrious leaders who achieved renown in the House of Commons may be included in the inscription?


I will consider the hon. Member's suggestion in consultation with the Speaker.

Viscount CURZON

Can we have an assurance that the table will not be mutilated unnecessarily?
