§ Mr. McGovern
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he will consider an alteration in the Ladies Gallery, in order that a greater number of seats should be provided, and that a better opportunity should be given to visitors to hear the Debates and see the Members who are speaking?
§ Mr. Ramsbotham
I will consult the authorities of the House as to the hon. Member's suggestion, but in view of the structural difficulties it may not be possible to make any alteration. However, an experiment is being carried out in order to see whether an improvement can be effected.
