asked the Minister of Works when the clock on the tower of St. James's Palace is to be reactivated.
My right hon. Friend hopes that the clock will be going again within five days.
Will my right hon. Friend make sure that when he does re-energise this clock he will also incite it to strike?
When the clock has got going again that will happen.
Will the hon. Member bear in mind that all the clubs in the neighbourhood will be exceedingly grateful to hear this announcement, in view of the difficulties they have had, for many years past, in deciding officially when closing time has come along?
