HC Deb 13 November 1950 vol 480 c111W
55. Mr. Llewellyn

asked the Lord President of the Council how much money has been made available to the main committee of the Festival of Britain; and how much has been allocated to the Welsh Committee.

Mr. H. Morrison

No money is made available to the Council of the Festival of Britain or to the Welsh Committee. Both are advisory. On the recommendations of the Welsh Committee£64,000 is being spent on projects in the Welsh Committee's programme. It must not be assumed that this£64,000 is the sum of benefits to Wales. In addition to the visit of the "Campania" to Cardiff, Wales will benefit from Festival publicity all over the world and the inclusion in the South Bank Exhibition of exhibits of interest to the Welsh. For example, there is to be a prominent exhibit in the Land of Britain Section on Snowdonia.
