§ 52. Mr. Driberg
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total annual charge on the public funds in respect of the pay of Service and prison chaplains?
§ The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir Kingsley Wood)
The total annual charge on public funds in respect of the pay of Service and prison chaplains is approximately £1,160,000.
