§ 63. Mr. E. BROWN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, when it is intended to remove the unsightly ladders and screens from Westminster Hall?
The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Lieut.-Colonel Sir Vivian Henderson)
The screens in question were used for the completion of the paintings in St. Stephen's Hall. They are now no longer required and will be removed within the next few days.
§ Sir V. HENDERSON
The hon. Member is not accurate in his information. It was found necessary to make further alterations to one of the pictures as late as the Easter holidays, and it is only 1903 within the last two or three days that I have been assured that no further alterations will be required.
