HC Deb 01 May 1950 vol 474 c152W
46. Sir W. Darling

asked the Lord President of the Council if a full list of activities, festivities and other incidents, proposed as parts of the Festival of Britain, will be published for the information of the general public.

Mr. H. Morrison

Plans for the Festival, whether part of the official programme or made by local authorities and other bodies independently, have been published in the Press at frequent intervals during the past 18 months. In due course more detailed information will be made available to the public, not only through the editorial columns of the Press, but by advertisements, posters and publicity literature. The hon. Member will appreciate that it is not an easy task for the Festival Office to maintain a comprehensive list of the many activities related to the Festival which are not officially organised. They would welcome early notification by outside organisations of any plans for the Festival that they may be making.
