§ Mr. Chope
The new servery was designed to improve the service to right hon. and hon. Members and the working conditions for staff of the Refreshment Department. A comprehensive range of equipment has been installed for the storage, preparation, display and dispensing of food and drink, and for storing and dispensing crockery.
The purpose of the new supply and extract ventilation system is to overcome long-standing complaints about stagnant air and high room temperatures.
The main contractor for the refurbishment scheme was Messrs. Haymills (Contractors) Ltd. The work was carried out in accordance with the terms of its tender.
