HC Deb 22 March 1923 vol 161 cc2790-1W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he will assure the House that no suggestion of any guarantee, over and above that already provided for by law, has or will be made towards any deficit on account of the British Empire Exhibition?

Lieut.-Colonel BUCKLEY:

My predecessor has already informed the hon. Member that the Department has no reason to anticipate an ultimate loss. In any event, the liability of the Government is limited by Act of Parliament, and the question of an extension of this liability is entirely within the control of the House.
