§ 62. Colonel Gomme-Duncan
asked the Minister of Works if he is aware of the deterioration of some of the oil-paintings in the Palace of Westminster; and what steps he proposes to take to remedy this.
§ Mr. Bevins
During the past five years nearly all the large murals and many other pictures in the Palace have been cleaned. My right hon. Friend is aware that a few more need treatment, but as they are in Committee Rooms they can only be dealt with during a long Recess when the specialist staff is available.
