§ Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Lord Privy Seal if, pursuant to the answer of 13 January, Official Report, column 441, about the allowance to hon. Members for assistance in drafting private Members' Bills, he has any plans to increase the allowance.
§ Mr. Biffen
I have no present plans to propose any increase in this allowance. During the last four Sessions there have only been five applications from hon. Members for this form of assistance.
