HC Deb 22 April 1913 vol 52 cc255-6W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Postmaster-General why the expenditure on the Marconi Select Committee chargeable to the Post Office Vote cannot be separated from other items of expenditure?


The work done be the Post Office in connection with the Marconi Select Committee has been done by the ordinary staff in conjunction with their ordinary duties, and no record has been made of the time involved. In these circumstances the cost cannot be estimated with any approach to accuracy.
