§ Mr. Parker
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he will state the total number of visitors to the Tower of London during 1937; the total amount taken in admission fees during that time; the annual expenditure incurred for wages 2741W paid to the staff; and whether the Tower as an exhibition is self-supporting?
§ Sir P. Sassoon
I regret that I am not able to state the total number of visitors. The total taken in entrance fees was £23,377. The annual expenditure on warders, etc., is £9,000. The expenditure on the maintenance of the historic parts of the structure in the year ending 31st March, 1937, was about £10,000 and of the remainder £6,000.
