HC Deb 24 November 1937 vol 329 cc1236-7W
Sir T. Moore

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the limited hotel accommodation available in Glasgow, he has given his approval, under Section 6 (1) of the Housing (Scotland) Act, 1935, to provision being made for the influx of visitors to be expected in connection with the forthcoming Empire Exhibition?

Mr. Elliot

No such approval is required. The overcrowding provisions, which the Section referred to is designed to relax, do not come into operation in any locality until after the appointed day, and the appointed day has not yet been fixed for Glasgow.

Mr. Anstruther-Gray

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will represent to the British Broadcasting Corporation the desirability of including in their Empire broadcasts occasional references to the Exhibition to be held in Glasgow next year?

Sir W. Womersley

I am informed by the British Broadcasting Corporation that several references to the Exhibition have already been broadcast in the Empire Programmes, and that it is proposed to include further references from time to time during the coming year.
