asked the Minister of Works whether he is aware that there is no means of escape from fire in the secretaries' room at the south end of Westminster Hall; and what action he proposes to take.
Yes, Sir. Arrangements are being made to provide a means of escape from this room.
While I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply, may I ask him if he can say how many other chambers in the Palace of Westminster are in a similar condition?
I cannot say without notice.
