HC Deb 04 June 1924 vol 174 c1251
83. Mr. BAKER

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he will state the capital, interests, and profits during 1919–23 of Messrs. J. Lyons & Company, Limited, which employs a large staff at the British Empire Exhibition?


My hon. Friend will find all the information which he requires in such books of reference as the Stock Exchange Year Book, and in these circumstances he will, perhaps, excuse my furnishing a reply which would involve reading a lengthy series of figures to the House.


Is the hon. Member aware that the catering arrangements at the Exhibition are entirely unsatisfactory, and that it is impossible to cope with the large crowd?


I do not think that point arises on this question.
