§ Mr. David Young
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster why the photostating machines in Norman Shaw North are switched off during sittings of the House; and if he will take steps to have this practice changed.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The copying machine on the ground floor in Norman Shaw North is left on until the rising of the House, but the remainder are turned off when the attendants hand over to the night watchman at 9 pm. Similar arrangements are in force in Norman Shaw South.
The times of operation of all copying machines are approved by the Services Committee.
