§ 72. Mr. Denis Howell
asked the Lord President of the Council if he will state the guiding principles which determine that Members shall be charged 5p for a pot of tea served by waiters in the Smoke Room, 6p for a pot of tea obtained from the cafeteria in the Members tea room and 12p for a pot of tea served by waitresses in the dining room.
I have been asked to reply.
I am grateful to the hon. Member for drawing these anomalies to my attention, and I will take steps to see that they are rectified. I must point out, however, that pots of tea are not served in the dining room.
