HC Deb 19 December 1989 vol 164 c125W
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.
