asked the right hon. Member for Middlesbrough, as representing the House of Commons Commission, which posts in the service of the House receive a tax-free entertainment allowance of £1,500 per annum; and whether he will arrange to pay £1,500 per annum to those Officers not in receipt of this allowance.
No Officer on the staff of the House receives an entertainment allowance of the kind described. I am writing to the hon. Member.
