HC Deb 30 November 1939 vol 355 c260W
Sir T. Moore

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether, taking the 21s. allotted for billeting civil servants, this sum is intended to give any profit to the landlady, and, if so, how much; and how the sum is divided between accommodation and service and the food which is supplied under regulations?

Captain Crookshank

Of the sum of 21s. a week, 5s. is payable in respect of the provision of lodging and 16s. in respect of the provision of breakfast and a dinner meal daily. The rates have been fixed as representing reasonable and appropriate payment for the services which the billetor is required to provide.
