§ Mr. Burden
asked the Lord President of the Council what a portion of strawberries served in the strawberry teas on 19th May 1976 cost the Refreshment Department; and at what price per portion they were charged to Members.
§ Mr. Wellbeloved
I have been asked to reply.
The Refreshment Department always tries to buy provisions at the most advantageous price. However, it is not the policy of the Catering Sub-Committee to disclose details of its purchasing and pricing arrangements.
