HC Deb 24 November 1937 vol 329 cc1245-6W
Mr. Benjamin Smith

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether his attention has been called to the dirty condition outside St. Stephen's door, owing to the use of small coal; and will he take the necessary steps to abate this nuisance?

Sir P. Sassoon

The spot to which the hon. Member refers appears to form a "pocket" in which grit—whether from the chimney or elsewhere—accumulates; but I will certainly consider what steps can be taken to effect an improvement here.
