asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works how much of the profit from the sale of stone from the Houses of Parliament goes to the firm which is now circularising Members of Parliament and how much to the Red Cross?

I regret that the information required by the hon. Member is not available in my Department. The stone which has been damaged as a result of enemy action has been placed, free of charge, at the disposal of the Red Cross, who have made their own arrangements with the firm concerned for the manufacture of souvenirs and for their sale to the public on behalf of the funds of the Red Cross.
