§ 39. Mr. Higgins
asked the Lord President of the Council when a duplicating machine will be installed in Old Palace Yard.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
I have been asked to reply.
The Administration Sub-Committee of the Select Committee on House of Commons (Services) is considering the installation of additional duplicating machines in the House, and this proposal will be sympathetically considered.
§ Mr. Higgins
In thanking ,my right hon. and learned Friend for that reply, may I ask him to ensure that this matter is treated as one of some urgency? Hon. Members crossing the road to duplicate their documents run some risk, and the effect of a by-election after the Government's economic announcement today might be traumatic on Government morale.
