HC Deb 01 February 1965 vol 705 cc213-4W
Sir Knox Cunningham

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works how far his investigation into the conditions in the manned lifts in the House of Commons has progressed; and whether he will outline the structural alterations which he proposes to make before the summer, in the interest of the attendants.

Miss Jennie Lee

Throughout last summer the Ministry's engineers kept a check on the conditions in these lifts and reported that ventilation was satisfactory. During this period no complaints were received. I have, however, found that one of the manned lifts lacks an attendant's seat; I am arranging for one to be provided.
