HC Deb 14 December 1922 vol 159 c3135

asked the Prime Minister when he anticipates the British pavilion at the Rio de Janeiro Centenary Exhibition will be handed over to the Brazilian Government; and whether he will take steps to secure that the presentation will be made by a personage who will emphasise the importance of this national gift?

The PRIME MINISTER {Mr. Bonar Law)

No date has yet been announced by the Brazilian Government for the closing of the Brazilian Centenary Exhibition, and I am, therefore, not in a position to say when the British pavilion will be handed over to Brazil. As regards the last part of the question, I can assure my hon. Friend that every endeavour will be made to secure that the ceremony of presentation shall be worthy of the occasion.
