I have to report to my right hon. Friend that there is great stuffiness in Commons Court, especially for the new boys who do not have a window. I have had to buy an auxiliary unit. Can my right hon. Friend offer any comfort?
I am aware of the problem that arose recently for my hon. Friend and for other hon. Members on both sides of the House in what is known as the Tea Room block, where my hon. Friend's office lies. The compressor is in a hermetically sealed unit and so there are access problems. A new compressor was installed last year and it failed in early June of this year. The specialist firm failed to meet the timetable for manufacturing a replacement unit. I am glad to say that the equipment is now working again.
