HC Deb 09 July 1936 vol 314 cc1388-9
46. Mr. MANDER

asked the Lord President of the Council whet-her in view of the fact that the Royal Albert Hall Corporation possesses three royal charters, he will consider the desirability of introducing legislation which will prevent the continued exercise of political discrimination in the letting of the hall?

The LORD PRESIDENT of the COUNCIL (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)

I do not consider that this is a matter which should be dealt with by legislation.


Will the Lord President be good enough to consider the possibility of making representations to the Corporation in view of the close association in the past of the Royal Family with the Albert Hall?


Such representations, I think, do not fall within the scope of the duties of the Privy Council.
