HC Deb 15 February 1968 vol 758 cc411-2W
Q11. Mr. Rankin

asked the Prime Minister to what extent during his recent talks he discussed with President Johnson the use of nuclear weapons in the war in Vietnam.

The Prime Minister:

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Answers I gave to Questions on Tuesday last about my visit to North America.—[Vol. 758, c. 1146.]

Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Prime Minister what was the cost in foreign exchange and to public funds, respectively, of his latest visit to Washington; and if he will specify the duties of each of the members of his official staff who accompanied him on this occasion.

The Prime Minister:

Final accounts are not yet available, but the approximate cost to public funds was£8,900, of which about£300 was in foreign exchange. It is not the practice to specify the duties of individual civil servants on occasions of this kind, but if the hon. Member has any specific point to make I would be happy to consider it.
