§ 43. Mr. Lipson
asked the Home Secretary whether he has decided to veto the running of the Grand National for the duration of the war?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
I have carefully considered the proposal to hold a substitute Grand National at Cheltenham, but have come to the conclusion that this fixture is undesirable. I am accordingly asking the Stewards of the National Hunt Club not to proceed with their proposal.
§ Mr. Lipson
While thanking my right hon. Friend for that answer, is he aware that it will give very wide public satisfaction?
