HC Deb 03 March 1958 vol 583 cc106-7W
Mr. Benn

asked the Minister of Works if he will consider the experimental testing of the staff locator system in the Palace of Westminster with a view to considering the possibility of its use for Members of Parliament.

These systems are also expensive, and bearing in mind the complex and varied facilities which exist within the Palace of Westminster, they offer no reasonable hope of improvement upon the existing system of calling Members by messenger.
