HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 cc313-4W
79. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is his estimate of the expenditure on the Royal Yacht "Britannia" for the year 1967; and what reduction he proposes in this expenditure for 1968, in view of the need for economy in the public services.

Mr. Foley

£473,000 in the financial year 1967–68, including expenditure on a three month refit. The estimated expenditure in 1968–69 is £435,000. This will cover no more than her normal running expenses.
