§ 6. Dame Irene Ward
asked the Minister of Works if he will give an assurance that he will make every effort to furnish embassies, legations and high commissioners' houses in a manner befitting our position; and, further, where we can with advantage show the work of our modern craftsmen and designers, if he will do so in the hope of attracting buyers to this country.
§ Mr. Buchan-Hepburn
It is my intention to do all that I can to see that these houses are furnished in a fitting and dignified manner. With regard to the last part of the Question, I am not sure what the hon. Lady has in mind, but where it is a question of providing modern furniture we shall do all we can to select the most suitable examples of contemporary design and craftsmanship.
