HC Deb 29 June 1954 vol 529 c83W
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.
