HC Deb 24 June 1966 vol 730 cc167-8W
Mr. Clark Hutchison

asked the Lord President of the Council why the price of sherry served in the Smoking Room of the House of Commons has recently been raised.

Mr. Bowden

The wholesale prices of sherries included in the wine list were increased by amounts varying from 1s. to 2s. 11d. per bottle between May and July, 1965. The old wine list which was previously revised on the 3rd June, 1965, did not take these increases into account.
