HC Deb 11 May 1961 vol 640 c84W
Mr. Turton

asked the Minister of Works whether he is yet able to make a statement about the recommendation of the Select Committee on Estimates that the system and operation of the Government Hospitality Fund should be the subject of an inquiry.

Lord John Hope

Yes. The Treasury proposes to institute a review of the present arrangements for the preparation of the Estimate with the object of ensuring that, so far as is practicable in the unusually difficult circumstances, no likely expenditure which can reasonably be foreseen is overlooked.
