HC Deb 03 November 1947 vol 443 c166W
112. Mr. Sharp

asked the Minister of Works whether he intends taking any further action to improve the ventilation of the present House of Commons Chamber.

Mr. Key

Repairs to the filter screens have just been completed but no further work is proposed at present.

116. Mr. Bartlett

asked the Minister of Works whether in view of the increasing shortage of building materials, he will consider the advisability of holding up further work on the reconstruction of the House of Commons.

Mr. Key

No. The structural steel is already in position; the engineering installations are being manufactured and it has been decided that building work is to be continued.
