§ Mr. Whitaker
asked the Secretary of State for Defence why Lance-Corporal Kenneth Ramsay, of the Royal Scots Greys, is acting as a valet and chauffeur on private occasions; how many other serving members of the Armed Forces 166W are performing similar private duties; and whether he will recover the cost of such services from the officers who use these services.
§ Mr. Healey
Major the Duke of Kent has a full-time orderly because of the commitments which he undertakes in addition to his military duties. Officers are not required to repay the costs of orderlies.
