§ 23. Mr. H. WILLIAMS
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether it is proposed to hold an international exhibition in London in 1936 with the support of His Majesty's Government?
§ Lieut.-Colonel J. COLVILLE (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)
The terms of the International Convention relating to International Exhibitions, which was signed at Paris in 1928 and came into force at the end of 1930, and to which the United Kingdom is a party, render it impossible either for His Majesty's Government to give official support to a long-term international exhibition in this country at the date mentioned, or for those foreign Governments which are parties to the Convention to participate in it.
