HL Deb 29 November 1990 vol 523 cc1071-2
The Chairman of Committees

My Lords, I beg to move the second Motion standing in my name on the Order Paper.

Moved, That in accordance with Standing Order 73 the Committee for Privileges be appointed and that as proposed by the Committee of Selection the Lords following, with the Chairman of Committees and any four Lords of Appeal, be named of the Committee:

—(The Chairman of Committees.)

Lord Stoddart of Swindon

My Lords, I wish to raise a point about privileges. It is no privilege to sit on this particular bench because there is a roaring cold draught—

Noble Lords

Hear, hear!

Lord Stoddart of Swindon

My Lords, in spite of the fact that many complaints have been made, nothing has been done. In order that we may become a little more privileged will the Chairman of Committees make representations to the authorities to ensure that the problem is dealt with and that we may have a little warmth?

The Chairman of Committees

My Lords, the question is a little wide of the Motion, and I know that the situation is a good deal worse for those who wear skirts, but I shall look into the matter.

Baroness Hollis of Heigham

How do you know?

On Question, Motion agreed to.
