§ 6. Mr. Spearman
asked the Minister of Works the amount of rent paid by his Department for 23, St. Hilda's Terrace. Whitby.
§ The Minister of Works (Mr. Key)
It is not the practice of the Ministry to disclose the rents paid for premises.
§ Mr. Spearman
Can the Minister give some assurance that there is no truth in the local report that his Department pays over £400 a year for this house, the gross rateable value of which is £70 and which changed hands recently at £2,600?
