HC Deb 13 January 1981 vol 996 c504W
Mr. Speller

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will seek to make the catering facilities of the House available on a profit-making basis to reputable organisations in the tourist industry during the Summer Recess.

Mr. Pym

No. Mr. Speaker has recently agreed to a recommendation from the Services Committee that the introduction of special tours during recesses, including access to the Refreshment Department, would be inappropriate at the present time.
