§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will make a statement on his investigation into the administration of the House of Commons Refreshment Department, the maladministration and misappropriation of the Refreshment Department's stocks and into the disappearance of 80 lb. of steak and its re-appearance after notice of investigation had been given.
I have been asked to reply.
The steak to which the hon. Member is referring has now been accounted for. The investigation by Versa-Serve Limited is still continuing and the administration of the Refreshment Department has already been improved in a number of respects.
