HC Deb 15 February 1966 vol 724 c195W
44. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what directions he has given to the Ministers concerned that moneys provided by them for the payment of subsidies are laid out in the most effective and economic way.

Mr. Callaghan

All Ministers are already fully aware of the need for economy and efficiency in all fields of public expenditure. No general directions about subsidies are necessary.
