§ 18. Mr. DAY
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he will state the gross amount that has been paid by way of grants to the Travel Association of Great Britain and Ireland, and the amounts, separately, for the last 12 months; whether his Department is consulted regarding the manner in which the money for advertisements has been spent; and will he give particulars of the success of this Department
§ Captain WALLACE
I assume that the hon. Member refers to grants from the Exchequer. The total amount paid to the association since its formation. in 1929 is £31,000, and for the financial year 1935–36, £4,000. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative. As regards the third part, I have asked the general manager of the association to send the hon. Member a copy of the last annual report.
