HC Deb 06 May 1980 vol 984 cc27-8W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what facilities are available for hon. Members to receive urgent telex messages at the House; and if none exist, if he will take steps to provide such a service for hon. Members.

Mr. St John-Stevas

Telex facilities are available in the House only on a very limited basis.

The Accommodation and Administration Sub-Committee of the Services Committee has examined a number of proposals for providing a fuller service, but came to the conclusion that none of them could be recommended for implementation.
