HC Deb 22 July 1929 vol 230 c907
65. Mr. HURD

asked the First Commissioner of Works if he will cause indicators to be placed on the Terrace, so that Members who are in consultation with constituents there may carry out their duties in the House as occasion arises?


An indicator placed on the Terrace of the Houses of Parliament would be visible from a very small portion of the Terrace only, and there is already an indicator in the Members' Smoking Room which opens directly from the Terrace. In the absence, therefore, of a general demand from hon. Members, I feel that the provision of an indicator, as suggested, is unnecessary. There are also difficulties in the way of placing an indicator in the open air.


What would be the cost of an indicator?


I think the cost would be very small, but it is considered to be quite unnecessary.
