§ Mr. Lewis
asked the hon. Member for Woolwich, West, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, if he is aware that many hon. Members are unable to afford the costs of the meals and snacks provided in the Members' Dining Rooms, etc.; and whether, as a means of assisting these Members, he will make facilities available whereby Members can bring their own meals and sandwiches to an appointed canteen or room, and prepare their own tea, and snacks, etc.
§ Sir W. Steward
Under the present catering arrangements Members can purchase snacks and meals at prices to suit all pockets. It is not considered either possible or desirable to attempt to provide facilities such as the hon. Member suggests.
