asked the Prime Minister whether he will move to appoint a Select Committee to consider the improvement of the amenities of the Palace of Westminster, the Committee's findings to be correlated with those of the Select Committee on the Rebuilding of the House of Commons?

Does not the Prime Minister agree that there was a very strong wish expressed in the Debate last week by most of the hon. Members who spoke, that the question of facilities and amenities could be considered at the same time?

Those are rather matters which the Committee can take into their purview and deal with, and we shall have the advantage of seeing their Report on the subject in general.

Will a direction be given to the Committee that the House shall not be ventilated by air driven through hon. Members' feet?
