Why should I and noble Lords trust the Executive to deal with mice when they cannot deal with the economy?

Earlier this month, there was an entertaining debate
in the House of Lords about pest control in the Palace of Westminister, where the Lords meet.
Baroness Finlay of Llandaff:
I thank the noble Lord for his reply. How many calls have there been to the mouse helpline? Has the accuracy of that information been checked, given that the staff report seeing mice on a daily basis at the moment in the eating areas? Has consideration been given to having hypoallergenic cats on the estate, given the history? Miss Wilson, when she was a resident superintendent in this Palace, had a cat that apparently caught up to 60 mice a night. The corpses were then swept up in the morning.
