§ 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.99W
§ 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.
