HC Deb 18 October 1945 vol 414 c1527W
Mr. Austin

asked the Minister of Works whether he will give consideration to the further installation of amplifiers in the Chamber in view of the fact that many Ministers and Members cannot be heard.

Mr. Tomlinson

The present arrangements under which loud speakers are installed in the Press Gallery and, at a distance of approximately 3 feet apart, on the floor of the House between the Gangway and the Bar were adopted after prolonged experiment, but the installation will be kept under observation and adjustments made from time to time if necessary.
