§ 99. Mr. Teeling
asked the Minister of Food whether he intends that the proposed maximum surcharge of 2s. 6d. per head should apply to Government hospitality henceforward; and whether in view of the importance of providing foreign statesmen with hospitality no less generous than they provide for a British statesman attending conferences in foreign capitals, he will make provision for adequate elasticity in the enforcement of the new scheme.
§ Mr. Strachey
Yes, Sir. Restrictions on the additional charge made for meals served in private rooms will apply to Government hospitality.
