89. Lieut.-Colonel GUINNESS
asked the hon. Member for the Pollok Division of Glasgow, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, at what date the repairs to the roof of Westminster Hall were begun, and when they will be finished?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The repairs were begun in July, 1914, and, as far as can be foreseen, the work will be completed by the end of next year. If hon. Members wish to inspect the roof, I will do my best to make the necessary arrangements, though it is only possible to escort a very limited number at a time.
§ Mr. WATERSON
Has the hon. Gentleman received any deputation from hon. Members to exercise economy in this, matter?
