§ 22. Mr. T. WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Health on what basis he calculates the expenses of the Director of Housing?
An allowance of £500 a year for out-of-pocket expenses was fixed after careful consideration of the actual extra expenditure falling upon this officer in consequence of absence from his home on official duties for a considerable part of the year.
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there. is a feeling among the higher officials in his Department that this post is unnecessary and that the money is absolutely wasted; and does he think it consistent with the dignity of his Department that the chairman of a London night club should be a temporary official of his Department?
