I am not aware that meals served in private rooms in West End hotels exceed the provisions of the Meals in Establishments Order. Whether in public or in private rooms only three courses may be served. If the hon. Member is aware of any instance in which he considers the law is not being observed and will let me have details, I will make inquiries.

I am sure the Minister has a staff which is most actively engaged in this kind of work, and it is not for me to supply the information.
