HC Deb 30 January 1951 vol 483 c711
38. Mr. Gilbert Longden

asked the Minister of Works if he will have the frescoes in St. Stephen's Hall and the Lobbies of the Palace restored and refreshed before the Festival of Britain.

Mr. Stokes

There are no frescoes but only paintings on canvas, either in St. Stephen's Hall or the Lobbies of the Palace. I do not feel the programme of cleaning and repair already arranged needs any special adjustment for the Festival of Britain.
