asked the hon. Member for Cheltenham, as Chairman of the Kitchen and Refreshment Rooms Committee, if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the electric fans as now placed in the Harcourt Room are very disturbing to the coiffures of ladies dining there; and if he can arrange to have them refixed at such an angle as will obviate this and yet secure adequate ventilation?

Before the question is answered, will the hon. and gallant Gentleman say whether it is the coiffures or the fans that have to be refixed?

The Committee are considering a suggested alteration in the construction of the fans in the Harcourt Room, which will, we hope, prevent a recurrence of the tragedies reported in the question of the hon. and gallant Member.
