HC Deb 26 January 1954 vol 522 c1581
11. Sir R. Acland

asked the Minister of Works whether, in the light of experience gained at the concert held in Westminster Hall on 17th December, he can see his way to arranging or permitting a few further concerts during the present year; and whether some of these might be on Mondays or other days when the House is sitting.

Sir D. Eccles

The Christmas carols which were sung in Westminster Hall by the Board of Trade choir gave great pleasure. I am ready to allow, in consultation with the other authorities of the Palace of Westminster, one or two more concerts during the year.

Sir R. Acland

Do you appreciate, Mr. Speaker, that it was largely owing to the presence of your son in the choir that the singing was of such a high order?
