HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 c1533
68. Mr. David Adams

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he has considered the desirability of placing a wireless set in some convenient room in the House so that Members may not continue to be at a disadvantage in the receipt of current news of national or international importance available to the general public?

Mr. Adams
