asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will make a full statement with regard to the plans which have been made for accommodating foreign visitors who come to this country to attend the Olympic Games.

Mr. H. Wilson

Arrangements to facilitate the provision of all types of accommodation for overseas visitors to the Olympic Games this year have been undertaken by the British Tourist and Holidays Board. An Olympic Games Accommodation (Overseas Visitors) Bureau has been established, and has now begun its work. This Bureau is operated, without profit, on behalf of the British Tourist and Holidays Board by the Creative Tourist Agents' Conference, and is located at 10, Mayfair Place, W.1. Its activities are supervised by a special committee under the chairmanship of one of the members of the British Tourist and Holidays Board, and is representative of the Organising Committee of the XIVth Olympiad, the Travel Agents and the Hotels Associations.
