HC Deb 17 January 1968 vol 756 cc603-4W
Mrs. Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what was the amount of the expenses not describable as extra expenses incurred by the playing of two pipers of the Royal Scots Grays at a Scottish store in Zurich in October 1967.

Mr. Boyden:

The visit of the two pipers to Zurich did not give rise to any extra charges to Ministry of Defence funds. Their travel, food and accommodation were paid for by the store. Both soldiers were, of course, paid their normal pay and allowances for the period by the Army. These amounted to about £32.
