asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the total net income in the last convenient twelve months received by the Exchequer from the Crown Lands, the Duchy of Cornwall, and other Royal revenues for which Her Majesty's Government are responsible; and what proportion of this total net income was returned to the Royal Family in the Civil List, including the Salaries and Expenses of Her Majesty's Household, and under supplementary provision.

The net income received by the Exchequer from the Crown Estate and other hereditary revenues of the Crown during the financial year 1960–61, amounted to £2,635,310.
