HC Deb 27 November 1950 vol 481 c107W
52. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will arrange for old age pensioners, on production of their pension order books, together with their identity cards, to obtain admission free, or at a reduced charge, to the Festival of Britain.

Mr. H. Morrison

I assume the Question refers to admission to the South Bank Exhibition. I wish I could see my way to meet this and other requests for admission at reduced rates, but the objections are too great, with the sole exception of organised parties of children in full-time attendance at school, whose claims I feel obliged to put first.
