Parliament Speaker's chair cartoon

Observers of Parliament were attuned to anything that suggested inconsistency in policies. The cartoonist for the New Zealand Herald recognised the irony of a new Speaker's chair being presented to Parliament in 1951 at a time when the buildings themselves were in disrepair. The fact that the chair was a gift from a visiting delegation of the British House of Commons seemed not to matter.
