asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that electric lights are burning all day in the office of His Majesty's Inspector of Taxes, Bridlington, owing to the fact that the glass damaged by enemy action has never been replaced; and whether, in order to avoid waste of fuel, arrangements can be made for the permanently blacked-out windows to be replaced by glass?

I have been asked to reply. I am aware that in certain offices the natural lighting has been affected by substitutes for glass and by the pasting of scrim over glass. It would obviously be premature to relax precautions particularly in vulnerable areas, nor is labour and material available for wholesale re-glazing, but consideration is being given to the possibility of effecting some improvement in buildings where the lighting has been very badly affected.
