asked the First Commissioner of Works whether, in view of the great interest taken in the matter, he will give facilities for Members to visit the roof of Westminster Hall prior to the final removal of the scaffolding?
Facilities will be given for two parties to view the roof of Westminster Hall at 12 noon and 4 p.m. on Wednesday next, the 21st instant, under the guidance of Sir Frank Baines, the Director of Works, who has been in charge of the repairs throughout. I would suggest that Members should assemble in front of the war memorial at St. Stephen's Entrance at the hours named.
Will the scaffolding be still there?
I am afraid it would be an acrobatic feat for most Members to visit the roof without the scaffolding.
