HC Deb 01 December 1952 vol 508 c111W
46. Sir H. Williams

asked the hon. Member for Woolwich, West, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, whether, in view of the small use made by the Members of the Front Opposition Bench of the table reserved for them in the Members' Dining Room, he will make this table available for any hon. Members who desire to use it.

Mr. Steward

The Kitchen Committee do not exercise any control over seating arrangements in the Members' Dining Room. Members choose their own seats. It has, however, been the custom for the two large oval tables in the centre to be used by the Members of the Government Front Bench and the Front Opposition Bench.
