§ 41. Mr. Mitchell
To ask the hon. Member for Roxburgh and Berwickshire, representing the House of Commons Commission, if the Commission will increase the financial provision for resources and facilities available to visitors to the House. 
§ Mr. Kirkwood
Following a Recommendation of the Catering Committee in the last Parliament, the House agreed on 12 July 1994 that the area currently occupied by the Westminster Hall Cafeteria should be converted to a Visitor Centre, but this should only take place once a suitable alternative has been found for the present lunchtime users. No doubt this is a matter a new Catering Committee will wish to take up at an early date.
Provision of facilities for families of hon. Members is a matter for the Administration Committee.
