HC Deb 16 December 1949 vol 470 c367W
Mr. Dormer

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of local hopes and wishes, he will consider the revival of the Tidworth Tattoo at the time of the Festival of Britain in 1951.

Mr. Shinwell

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Salisbury (Mr. J. Morrison) on 10th May, 1949. So far as can be foreseen, the considerations which made it impracticable for large scale tattoos to be held this year or next will continue to be applicable in 1951.
