§ Mr. Erroll
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many sleeper reservations on main line railways for the night of 27th March paid for by the House of Commons accounting officer were not used; and what was the total loss to public funds.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
Sixty-three of these reservations were cancelled too late to escape liability for payment. The number the cost of which will actually have to be paid from public funds is 40. The cost of these 40 is £60 6s.
