HC Deb 03 April 1951 vol 486 c1W
9. Mr. Baker White

asked the Minister of Works whether, to ensure that Festival of Britain visitors and others can see the full beauty of the roof of Westminster Hall, he will have the present lighting system, which is out of keeping with the period of the Hall, removed, and replace it with concealed strip lighting which will illuminate the roof.

Mr. Stokes

No. In my view strip lighting would be less appropriate than the present fittings which were carefully designed to give either floor lighting or to floodlight the roof at will.
