HC Deb 03 March 1975 vol 887 cc310-1W
48. Mr. Madden

asked the Lord President of the Council how many functions, sponsored by Members of Parliament, have been held in the House of Commons at weekends in the past year; whether these functions have resulted in a profit; and how many staff, full-time and part-time, have been included.

Mr. Dunn

I have been asked to reply.

A total of 129 functions sponsored by Members was held on Fridays and Saturdays during 1974, on which a small profit was made. 1,530 full-time and 546 part-time staff were involved.
