HC Deb 30 March 1950 vol 473 cc562-3
45. Dr. Barnett Stross

asked the Lord President of the Council whether space will be allocated in the Festival of Britain Exhibition to the display of British pottery; and whether sufficient decorated pottery of good quality will be available for the catering establishments attached to the Exhibition.

The Lord President of the Council (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

Pottery of various kinds will appear in those sections of the Festival Exhibition on the South Bank which deal with power and production, the home, new schools, character and tradition, and the seaside, and also in the Dome of Discovery. The pottery will take its place in these sections, and there will be no space allocated to pottery on its own. With regard to the second part of the Question, the Board of Trade have agreed that decorated pottery may be used in the Exhibition catering establishments.
