§ 6. Mr. Reeves
asked the Minister of Works whether facilities are being provided for Members of the House of Commons to witness the screening of films and to listen-in to wireless and television programmes in the new House of Commons.
§ Mr. Key
It is hoped to provide facilities for listening to wireless and television programmes when the new House of Commons is completed. No provision is being made for a cinema, but it is intended that the present arrangements will continue by which films of Parliamentary interest may be 1608 exhibited in the Grand Committee Room off Westminster Hall.
§ Mr. Reeves
Will my right hon. Friend ensure that the conditions in that room are much more satisfactory than at present for the exhibition of films, since it is hardly suitable?
§ 9. Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
asked the Minister of Works what accommodation will be provided in the new House of Commons for civil servants awaiting their turn of duty in the officials' box.
§ Mr. Mallalieu
Will the room be close to the Chamber itself, and will it include a ticker-machine so that the civil servants can follow the proceedings in the House?
