§ 35. Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop
asked the Paymaster-General what are his duties ex officio as treasurer of the Royal Patriotic Fund Corporation; and whether these include responsibility for the investment portfolio.
§ The Paymaster-General (Mr. George Wigg)
The Answer, Sir, to the first part of the Question is "Nil personally"; the answer to the second part is "No, Sir".
§ Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop
While thanking the right hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I ask why his duties are nil when it is laid down by Act of Parliament that he has duties as treasurer of the Royal Patriotic Fund Corporation?
