HC Deb 12 May 1924 vol 173 cc923-4W
Colonel MORDEN

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he can give a complete list of the concessionnaires at the British Exhibition, and the terms and considerations on which the concessions were granted?


I am informed by the British Empire Exhibition authorities that the following concessions have been granted in connection with the British Empire Exhibition:

  • Messrs. Campbell Gray, Limited, photography.
  • Messrs. Cave (Wembley), Limited, lavatories and car park.
  • Messrs. James Pain and Sons, Limited, fireworks.
  • 924
  • Messrs. Fleet way Press, Limited, publications.
  • Messrs. J. Lyons and Company, Limited, catering.
  • Messrs. Walter Hill and Company, Limited, advertising space.
  • Mr. Shanly, chairs.
  • Messrs. Wembley Amusements, Limited, amusements park.
  • Messrs. Never-Stop Transit, Limited, Messrs. Roadrails, Limited, and Messrs. G. D. Peters and Company, Limited, conveyance of visitors inside the Exhibition.
Even if it were possible within the limits of a reply to a Parliamentary question, I do not think it would serve any useful purpose to give particulars of the terms and considerations on which concessions were granted.
