HC Deb 31 October 1944 vol 404 c615
33. Mr. Tom Brown

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will make arrangements for the scale model of the prefabricated harbours in Normandy, together with the photographs and films, to be placed on exhibition at the principal towns and cities in the provinces and see that facilities are provided for the workmen, who by their craft and skill made such a splendid accomplishment possible, to see the exhibition.

Sir J. Grigg

I will certainly have the possibility examined.

Mr. Ellis Smith

Will the right hon. Gentleman consider giving priority to those industrial centres responsible for its production? Does he not agree that this is a fine concrete example of British public enterprise?

Sir J. Grigg

The answer to the second part of the question is, "Yes, Sir." As regards the first, I am not sure that if, for a good many reasons, it does become practicable, an exhibition in the Metropolis is not the surest way of getting an early exhibition of this kind.
