asked the Minister of Works if he proposes to remove the present clusters of lights in Westminster Hall, so that Festival visitors may see the Hall in its true beauty and dignity.

asked the Minister of Works whether the roof of Westminster Hall can be floodlit on dark mornings between 10 a.m. and 12 noon during the Festival of Britain.
