HC Deb 30 January 1941 vol 368 c670
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?

Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore

How will this affect the horse-breeding industry?
