HL Deb 08 October 1998 vol 593 c578
Baroness Trumpington

I am told that various noble Lords have been going down like ninepins. I have witnessed several near-misses. Could a white line be put on the bottom step until the House gets used to it?

Lord Carter

My Lords, this is not really a question for me except in so far as all Chief Whips are anxious that all your Lordships should be fit and well and not suffer any injury. I understand that this matter has been drawn to the attention of the House authorities and that they intend to deal with it.
