I have been asked to reply.

The Administration Sub-Committee of the Select Committee on House of Commons (Services) is considering the installation of additional duplicating machines in the House, and this proposal will be sympathetically considered.

In thanking ,my right hon. and learned Friend for that reply, may I ask him to ensure that this matter is treated as one of some urgency? Hon. Members crossing the road to duplicate their documents run some risk, and the effect of a by-election after the Government's economic announcement today might be traumatic on Government morale.

We hope to make a recommendation within a few days.
