§ 25 and 26. Sir F. Markham
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works (1) if he will take steps to see that temperatures in the libraries and tea rooms of the House are kept within normal limits; and what steps are being taken to eliminate bad smells, steam and other unpleasant atmospheric conditions;
(2) if he will take steps to introduce a system of ventilation in those rooms in the House of Commons which now have double windows.
§ Mr. Sharples
Conditions will be improved when the ventilation system, disturbed by works in the roof space overhead, has been restored at the end of this month. We are, in addition, arranging for fresh air input fans to be installed in the basement to take air into the rooms in the House of Commons which have double windows. This work is now out to tender and will be completed during the Summer Recess.
