HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 cc200-1W
109. Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what was the estimated cost of the illumination by fairy-bulbs of a Christmas tree at Felixstowe; and why permission for such an illumination was refused.

Mr. Robens

I have no information regarding the cost involved. The illumination was refused when the matter first arose in October in accordance with the policy which had operated since the early years of the war. Subsequently it was decided to modify this policy and accordingly permission for this lighting was given early in December.
