§ 39. Sir WILFRID LAWSON
asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether the Board of Works were responsible for the recent alterations in Westminster Abbey; if so, whether his attention has been called to the dissatisfaction which has been expressed as to the seating arrangements therein at the recent ceremony of the Order of the Bath: and whether, in case of further alterations, the provision of adequate accommodation to which they are entitled can be ensured for the Knights Commanders and Companions of the Order on any such or other future public occasions in which they are interested or concerned?
§ Mr. W. BENN
Neither the First Commissioner nor his Department were in any way responsible for the arrangements at the recent ceremony of the Order of the Bath in Westminster Abbey.
