HC Deb 23 July 1979 vol 971 cc60-1W
60. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will publish details of the financial arrangements made when an hon. Member uses facilities within the Palace of Westminster for family occasions like christenings or marriage receptions; how often the apartments allocated to Mr. Speaker have been so used in the past 10 years; on whose authority permission is granted; and what were the charges made.

Mr. Charles Irving

By permission of Mr. Speaker, such functions have been held in his State Rooms on nine occasions during the past 10 years; the Refreshment Department's charges are the same, regardless of where the function is held.
