HC Deb 24 June 1985 vol 81 c317W
35. Mr. Dormand

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he is satisfied with the progress being made in providing office accommodation for hon. Members; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Biffen

Yes. Final sketch plans for phase 1 of the new parliamentary building have been developed by the design team in accordance with the design brief given to the architects in the Services Committee's Third Report of 1983–84. These plans are now under consideration by the Services Committee's New Building Sub-Committee.

37. Mr. Boyes

asked the Lord Privy Seal what recent representations he has received from hon. and right hon. Members about the relative amounts of office space available to hon. Members in various parts of the House of Commons and its outbuildings.

Mr. Biffen

The subject of Members' accommodation has been raised with me by hon. Members on a number of recent occasions.
