HC Deb 30 July 1924 vol 176 cc2064-5
68. Sir A. BUTT

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the opening to the public upon payment of an entrance fee of the bungalow at the Crumbles, which has since been stopped by public protest whether he is aware that public exhibitions of this sort have a demoralising effect on the public; and, if he has not power at present, whether he will take power to stop them in future?


The incident referred to was, as far as I am aware, of a wholly exceptional character. Public opinion appears to have been strong enough to put an end to it, and I do not think it affords any sufficient ground for initiating legislation, even if I saw my way to framing a Measure which would be both effective and free from objection.

Lieut.-Colonel MEYLER

Are not the accounts in the Press as demoralising as the action of these people?


I have great sympathy with the point of view put forward by my hon. Friend.
