HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 cc383-4W
Mr. David James

asked the Lord President of the Council whether a notice showing the Private Notice Questions and Statements for the day can be shown on the television annunciators before the House meets.

Mr. Whitelaw

Yes. An experiment with such a notice will be made after the Christmas Recess. The notice will be shown from about 1 p.m. I must warn hon. Members, however, that the notice may be incomplete owing to the late time by which notice of Statements may be given to Mr. Speaker and the limited space on the annunciators. The notices posted in the Members' Lobby will remain as the only guaranteed complete notices.
