§ 6. Major Guy Lloyd
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the cost per head of the Control Commission in Germany for the running of its car services.
§ The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Ernest Bevin)
During the second half of 1948 the cost of running car services for members of the Control Commission was just under £30 per head.
§ Major Lloyd
Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied—it is not possible to ascertain from his answer—that this is a satisfactory figure, of which we need not be ashamed in any way? There are very strong rumours from those who have been in Germany recently that a great many people, including Britishers, are thoroughly dissatisfied with the extravagant cost of these services, which contrasts very strongly with that for the Armed Forces.
