HC Deb 05 December 1974 vol 882 c622W
Mr. Ashton

asked the Lord President of the Council whether, in order to help impoverished organisations, he will allow collections to be taken at meetings held on their behalf in Committee Rooms of the House.

Mr. Edward Short

I am not aware of any standing rule which would debar a collection at an authorised meeting held in a Committee Room. If my hon. Friend has a particular occasion in mind perhaps he will let me know.
