HC Deb 26 February 1964 vol 690 cc98-9W
Sir J. Foster

asked the hon. Member for Holland-with-Boston, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, if he is aware that for four months the refuse from the kitchens of the House of Commons has been put into a refuse trailer with open sides in a courtyard outside the kitchens, and that this practice has caused a stench and danger of food poisoning; and if he will arrange for this practice to cease and for the refuse to be disposed of in some way that is not obnoxious to health and comfort.

Sir H. Butcher

The disposal of refuse is the responsibility of the Minister of Public Building and Works, in consultation with the authorities of the House. I understand that the question of improving the arrangements is at present under discussion between them.
