asked the Lord President of the Council whether, in the light of the fact that members of the Press Gallery are to be charged the same prices in their restaurant as Members of the House in the Members' Dining Room, Members and Officers of the House and their guests will be charged in the Strangers' Dining Room the same prices as members of the Press Gallery and their guests in the Press Gallery Restaurant.
