§ 93. Dr. HASTINGS
asked the First Commissioner of Works if he will consider the desirability of the installation of a microphone in close proximity to the Despatch Box with an accompanying loud speaker so that the occupants of the Government Benches may be able to hear the replies given at Question Time.
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Mr. Lansbury)
Such an installation would present a number of acoustic difficulties, and I am not aware of any serious demand from hon. Members.
§ Dr. HASTINGS
Has the Chief Commissioner of Works any other proposals to enable hon. Members on this side of the House to hear answers to questions?
§ Mr. LANSBURY
I think I have heard Mr. Speaker say that we ought to be silent while a Member is speaking.
§ Mr. HARRIS
Could not other Ministers follow the example of the First Commissioner of Works and speak up?
