HC Deb 18 October 1966 vol 734 c6W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action he has taken, or intends to take, in the light of the Government's call for economy measures, to reduce the near £11,000 per annum expended on travel, subsistence allowances, hotels, and entertainment of the delegation to the Council of Europe, and when these economies are to commence.

Mr. George Thomson

The possibility of making certain reductions in the cost of the Delegation to the Council of Europe is at present under consideration and will shortly be discussed with the Leader of the Delegation.
