Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Lord President of the Council what are the criteria employed for allocating separate offices to those 176 hon. Members who are not Ministers.

Mr. Biffen:

The division of Back-Bench Members' rooms between the parties is decided by the parties at the beginning of each Parliament. The allocation of these rooms to particular Members is decided by the party Whips.
