HC Deb 16 June 1924 vol 174 cc1722-3
37. Mr. VIANT

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he will ask the Executive Committee of the British Empire Exhibition to make the concession to old age pensioners of free admission to the exhibition?


I have communicated my hon. Friend's suggestion to the British Empire Exhibition authorities. They regret that they are unable to make the proposed concession in view of the precedent which it would establish.
