§ 22. Mr. Bellenger
asked the Home Secretary to what extent the services of the Entertainments National Service Association have been utilised by his 1242 Department; and what has been the total amount expended from public funds in this connection?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
The services of the Entertainments National Service Association have been utilised to a considerable extent for members of the Civil Defence Services or for persons using public shelters. The cost has everywhere been met from private sources, and has not, so far as I am aware, entailed any expenditure of public funds.
§ Mr. Bellenger
Could, my right hon. Friend give us any indication of the extent to which these services have been used, by telling us either the number of concerts that have been given or the amount of money that is being expended, even though it has not been from public funds?
