§ Mr. Blenkinsop
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what progress he has made in providing simple office accommodation for Members of Parliament.
§ Mr. C. Pannell
289 Members at present have a separate desk and filing cabinet. About 60 additional desk places will become available by Easter, but about 40 of these will be only temporary and rather further from the Chamber than I would wish. A further 30 or so places will be available later this year.
