HC Deb 26 January 1971 vol 810 cc106-7W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Lord President of the Council whether delegates to Western European Union meetings and its committee meetings are, in addition to claiming expenses for travel costs involved in attending such meetings, also permitted to use embassy cars paid for out of Treasury funds.

Mr. Whitelaw

Delegates to Western European Union meetings may claim the cost of the appropriate rail or air fares. The question of the use of embassy cars is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs.
