asked the First Commissioner of Works what was the revenue in 1933 from visitors to the Tower of London; what expenses were charged against this revenue; was there any surplus; and, if so, how was it allocated?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
The total revenue in the financial year 1933–4 from admission fees and sales of guidebooks and postcards amounted to £18,706. Expenditure on the maintenance of the building, caretaking, supplies of gas, electricity and water, etc., amounted to £23,540. There was, therefore, no surplus.
