I have the honour to inform the House that representations, both last session and during the recess, were made to the Minister of Public Works (Mr. King) and to myself that there was a great need for a place in this building that would be a common meeting ground for members of the House and members of the press gallery. It was pointed out that with the present arrangement of lobbies and private rooms for members, there was little opportunity for intercourse between members. The minister and myself, after looking over the building for a suitable room, decided to place room No. 268 on the main floor, near the main entrance and opening out of the reading room, at the disposal of members of the House and the press gallery for the purpose referred to. The room has been furnished and is now open and ready for use.
