HC Deb 04 December 1946 vol 431 c324
23. Mr. Boothby

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster on how many occasions he has visited the British zone during the past 12 months and how many days he has spent in Germany.

Mr. J. Hynd

During the past 12 months I have visited the British zone seven times and have spent 28 days in Germany.

Mr. Boothby

Does the hon. Gentleman think that is adequate for the discharge of his duties?

Mr. Hynd

No, Sir. I am afraid a 24-hour day is not adequate for the discharge of my duties, but I hope that the relief which has been given to me by the introduction of weekly answers to Questions instead of daily, may assist.
