HC Deb 04 April 1989 vol 150 c26
Mr. Dennis Skinner (Bolsover)

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. You will know that a new parliamentary building is being prepared across the road from the House. I wonder what jurisdiction you have in that respect, because it was reported to me that, in order to celebrate 40 years of NATO, somebody hung up a banner proclaiming Get out of NATO. No nukes here which I thought was pretty good for a start. I wondered whether you, Mr. Speaker, had authorised that banner to be hung up, or whether it has something to do with honouring Gorbachev's visit.

Mr. Speaker

I have a pretty good view from my residence.

Mr. Skinner

Did you see that banner, Mr. Speaker?

Mr. Speaker

No, I did not see it.
