HC Deb 05 July 1968 vol 767 cc275-6W
Mr. Whitaker

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works whether he will provide air conditioning in all parts of the Palace of Westminster used by the Commons.

Mr. Mellish

As discomfort due to high temperatures and humidity is nor- mally experienced at most on a comparatively few days each year while the House is sitting, I do not consider that an extension of air conditioning to all parts of the House of Commons would be justified.
