HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c122W
124. Mr. Rankin

asked the Minister of Works if he is aware that no drinking water facilities for visitors exist in the Palace of Westminster; and what steps he proposes to take to meet this need.

Mr. Molson

Drinking water is available for visitors to the Strangers' Gallery. Sightseers in the publicly conducted parties are not normally in the Palace for more than about three-quarters of an hour and I do not consider that special provision is needed for them.
