My Written Statement of 29 March 2006 (WS 84) informed the House that the Administration and Works Committee had agreed that the large room in the south-east corner of the Palace previously occupied by the Lord Chancellor's private staff would be converted into a Writing Room with refreshment facilities. Work will take place this summer to create a larger Writing Room facility in the former Lord Chancellor's office next door and to reorganise the furniture in the corner room to provide an informal space for Members. The nearby kitchenette facilities will also be enhanced to enable the Refreshment Department to provide an afternoon tea service for Members upon the House's return in October.
