HC Deb 24 July 1967 vol 751 cc52-3
45. Mr. Moonman

asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will seek to arrange for lighting and ventilation specialists to examine the conditions in which hon. Members work in the Cloisters.

Mr. Crossman

I am aware that the lighting and ventilation of the Cloisters is not good, and I am asking my right hon. Friend the Minister of Public Building and Works to make a thorough examination and to make what improvements he can during the Summer Recess.

Mr. Moonman

I think that we shall all welcome that statement. Would my right hon. Friend appreciate, in his efforts to modernise Parliament, the need to make a more effective use of this building, and, in particular, in relation to the 12 or so lost souls in the Cloisters?

Mr. Crossman

I accept that point.
