Sources in the High Commission of Pakistan have  confirmed that they have never paid for the Presidents private visit to Glasgow .
According to the release, the room rents  in London hotels have surged many times due to high tourist season from  July-August, however the rooms for  presidents delegation have been booked on discounted rates for the visit.
The High Commission has booked only four junior suites for the senior officers in the delegation as per their entitlement. Rest of all the delegates will stay in standard rooms.
To economise the cost of the visit, the High Commission has booked 8-seater vans for the delegates which would cost three times less than luxury cars. Food has been arranged for the delegates from a Pakistani restaurant at an unbelievable price for which even one cannot buy a sandwich in London .
The British Government will provide car and a backup car for the President during his stay in London . To economise the cost, the President will visit Birmingham by car to address community meeting on August 7.
The President will address a community gathering of 3000 people in Birmingham.
The Hall booked by the High Commission is the cheapest hall available at very special discounted  price. Pakistan Peoples Party will bear expenses for the vans carrying the party activists to community meeting. All ministers and senior members of the Party have been instructed to pay their bills themselves,” said the release.
