HC Deb 15 May 1952 vol 500 c136W
Sir E. Keeling

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what sum was spent, in the most recent year for which figures are available, on defraying the expenses of persons coming to London to attend an investiture.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

The precise figure is not available centrally and could not be obtained without a disproportionate amount of time and work. It is, in any event, trivial.
