HC Deb 25 June 1986 vol 100 c184W
Mr. Janner

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he will raise with the Services Committee the replacement of the railings in Westminster Hall; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Biffen

No. I accept that the existing railings are plain and functional in character; but demands on the parliamentary works programme are heavy at present and will remain so for the foreseeable future, and in these circumstances I do not regard replacement of the railings as a priority.
