§ VICOUNT MONSELL
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will now impose a limit on the rent of flats that are leased, and meals bought on expense accounts, and so mitigate the ever increasing rise in rent and cost of meals in restaurants.
§ THE MINISTER WITHOUT PORT-FOLIO (THE EARL OF DUNDEE)
I assume that my noble friend is thinking of a limit for the purposes of income tax allowances. I am bringing his suggestion to the notice of my right honourable friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
House adjourned at fourteen minutes past six o'clock.
