§ 71. Sir R. Glyn
asked the Minister of Works whether he is aware that the lift formerly known as the Ladies' Gallery lift, can now ascend no higher than the floor below the Committee Corridor floor, although provision was made, in Appendix three to the Report of the Select Committee on the House of Commons (Rebuilding), for this lift to serve the Committee Corridor floor; and whether he can arrange for the plans as agreed by the Select Committee and the House to be carried out in respect to this lift.
§ Mr. Stokes
I am aware that the lift formerly known as the Ladies' Gallery lift now only serves the floors below the Committee Corridor floor. The provision of adequate reporters' accommodation above this lift made it impossible for the lift to serve the Committee Corridor floor. It is not now possible to alter this.
