BUSINESS QUESTION – THE TWO CHANCELLORS – 20 January 2005

Dr Julian Lewis: Does the Leader of the House recall the double act by the two Chancellors – of the Exchequer and the Duchy of Lancaster – at an election poster unveiling, an event that featured all the humour but none of the charm of the Two Ronnies? May we have a statement about the use of Government cars by Ministers and their flunkies attending events of that sort, as they are evidently going to become more and more frequent in the weeks ahead?
