HC Deb 29 April 1929 vol 227 c1301W

asked the Undersecretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, if his attention has been called to the erection of a counter inside the entrance to St. Stephen's Hall; and the purpose for which it has been placed there?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. It is proposed to sell to Members and to the public literature descriptive of the Houses of Parliament, together with photographs and reproductions of works of art in the Palace of Westminster. The Commons Library Committee and Lord Colebrooke are to decide what shall be sold. The proceeds will be credited to the Speaker's Fund.
