Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
As the title indicates, this Royal Commission was established to inquire into and report on the best means of ventilating and lighting the Legislative Assembly Chamber. The Commission was appointed on 5 January 1888 and made two progress reports, one in March and the other in April.

It recommended that the whole of Parliament House be connected to electric lighting and that a system of artificial ventilation be used whereby air was forced into the chamber.

Further information about the Royal Commission see Papers Presented to Parliament: Session 1888 Paper No.37, Volume 2, p.1209.
