HL Deb 27 October 2003 vol 654 c1WA
Lord Lucas

asked the Chairman of Committees: Whether he will arrange for the security gate in the Peers' Entrance to be adapted to Pugin or Gothic form. [HL5045]

The Chairman of Committees (Lord Brabazon of Tara)

No. The principle underlying the design of security gates is that they should be functional and unobtrusive, without causing damage to the historical fabric. The current gate is temporary, pending the arrival of a more effective and less obtrusive replacement.
