HC Deb 26 February 1947 vol 433 c302W
123. Mr. J. Foster

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation, whether he will issue instructions to discontinue the advertisement of B.O.A.C. in the U.S.A. which is designed to attract visitors to this country on the grounds that fox-hunting, grouse, partridge and pheasant shooting will continue in England as ever and that the war has little marred the traditional attractions of the United Kingdom.

Mr. Lindgren

No, Sir, this is a matter of management within the competence of the Corporation, in which my noble Friend would not propose to intervene. I can say, however, that the advertisement referred to has not been repeated since it appeared in November last, and the Corporation do not intend to use it again.
