§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The Services Committee's constant aim is to accommodate Members in reasonable accommodation as near to the Chamber as possible. To this end its long-term aims with regard to the development of the Bridge Street site for a new parliamentary building were published in the Committee's fifth report of 1977–78. A further report, together with Sir Hugh Casson's recommendations on the treatment of the site, is expected to be published by the end of the year.
