§ Ms. Walley
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, pursuant to his reply of 7 December,Official Report, column 323, why there has been no lighting on the stairs leading from the Committee Corridor for the last 14 days.
§ Mr. Chope
From the limited description it is not possible to identify which of the five stairs to the Committee Corridor the hon. Member has in mind. A check on 13 December identified only two bulbs, each on separate stairs, which needed replacing, plus three emergency lights. But I hope the hon. Member understands that it is not necessary to use the formalities of a parliamentary question in order to have a light bulb replaced.
