HC Deb 01 May 1950 vol 474 c1392
23. Mr. Driberg

asked the Minister of Works the nature and purpose of the excavation begun last week in the staircase of Westminster Hall

Mr. Stokes

The object is to adjust the level of the steps at the south end of Westminster Hall, which have been sinking for some years. A sharp eye will be kept for any sign of the King's Stone, in which my hon. Friend has shown so much interest.
