Question:What was the reason for replacing the Cabinet room, table and chairs in the Beehive refurbishment project, and what is to be done with the old table and chairs?

Portfolio: Speaker of the House, Rt Hon Jonathan Hunt, Date Lodged:10/12/2003

Answer:The Cabinet room has been refurbished in a modern décor consistent with all other areas on the upper floors. Improvements have been made to the room acoustics and to the air-conditioning by eliminating draughts. The old table was not suited to the room décor and its condition had deteriorated significantly in recent years. The chairs were not adjustable and, because they did not meet current ergonomic standards, were not suitable for long meetings. The old table and chairs have been placed in storage. No decision has been made on their future use as yet.
