§ 49. Mr. W. Hamilton
asked the Minister of Works when he will reply to the letter from the hon. Member for West Fife, forwarding to him 112 letters from all parts of the country on the question of 119W expenditure on Royal Palaces; and whether he will take steps to re-examine this expenditure.
§ Lord John Hope
I returned the letters to the hon. Member on 28th April, and I hoped that he would consider this, coupled with my replies to his Question and supplementaries on 25th April, a sufficient reply. All expenditure on Royal Palaces is subject to the normal controls.
