asked the Minister of Works if he will give an approximate date when the repairs to Westminster Hall will be completed, in order that the scaffolding to the roof may be taken down and Westminster Hall restored to Members of both Houses of Parliament and the general public.

I hope that repairs to the roof of Westminster Hall will be completed and the roof scaffolding removed by October this year. The Hall will not be fully restored until the stonework has been repaired, the temporary cloakroom removed, and the memorial stained glass window in St. Stephen's Porch erected. These works cannot be completed before 1951 at the earliest. It may, however, be possible to allow access to the Hall before its restoration is complete.
