HC Deb 08 July 1965 vol 715 c304W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will state the estimated cost of the visits of Members of Parliament to small island territories.

Mr. Greenwood

The total cost to United Kingdom funds of the visits by Members of Parliament to colonial territories referred to in my written reply to the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr. Harry Howarth) on 24th June is estimated to be £8,500. This estimate includes provision for the Secretary from the Colonial Office to accompany each party.
