Mr. Ford

asked the Lord President of the Council what has been the effect on the finances of the refreshment department of the all night and late Friday sittings since 1st December, 1971.

I have been asked to reply.

All-night sittings—from midnight until the rising of the House—together with late Friday sittings have resulted in a cumulative loss of £895.
