§ 51. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Lord President of the Council if he will take steps to ensure that the opening of the Festival of Britain does not take place on a Sunday.
§ Mr. H. Morrison
As already announced, the opening of the Festival of Britain will be broadcast to the world from the steps of St. Paul's Cathedral by His Majesty The King after a service of dedication in St. Paul's Cathedral on Thursday, 3rd May, 1951.
§ Sir W. Smithers
Does the Lord President know that in England even would-be dictators have to bow sometimes to public opinion?
§ Mr. Keeling
Can the Lord President say if it has been decided yet whether the Exhibition should be open on Sundays?
§ Captain Ryder
What advice has been tended by the Churches Advisory Council—I believe that is what it is called—on the question of the Festival being open on Sundays?
§ Mr. Morrison
I admit that the Question on the Order Paper is perhaps a little vague but, as I understand it, that is not the question intended to be put.
