§ Mr. Gwilym Roberts
asked the Lord President of the Council if there are plans to use the basements in Norman Shaw (South) to make additional office accommodation available to hon. Members; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Biffen
The basement of Norman Shaw (South) is not suitable for Members' occupation, but I understand that proposals for the use of the lower ground floor are being prepared by the Department of the Environment whereby some accommodation for Members might become available. When complete, the proposals will be considered by the Accommodation and Administration Sub-Committee.
