HC Deb 23 July 1973 vol 860 c283W
49. Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to be able to announce the cost to public funds incurred by Mr. Francis Bennion in his private prosecution of Mr. Peter Hain.

Mr. Carlisle

I understand that the solicitors' bill is under scrutiny by the appropriate taxing authority. I cannot yet say how soon the matter will be finally resolved.
