HC Deb 21 November 1966 vol 736 cc937-8
35. Earl of Dalkeith

asked the Paymaster-General how many times he has visited Scotland in connection with his official duties since 1st April, 1966.

The Paymaster-General (Mr. George Wigg)

None, Sir.

Earl of Dalkeith

Will the right hon. Gentleman accept that no personal attack is implied by my joining in the old war between the Whigs and the Tories, but can he satisfy the legitimate curiosity of my taxpayer constituents about what he does in return for the fat fee which they are paying him, without his usual red herrings about what the Tory Government did?

Mr. Wigg

I congratulate the noble Lord on the results of the midnight oil spent on the first part of the supplementary question. The second part does not arise from the Question.
