§ 11. Mr. Driberg
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many colour-bar incidents have been dealt with by the Travel and Holidays Association, and with what result; and what steps are taken by the association to make it widely 74W known in the trade that such discrimination is contrary to the policy of His Majesty's Government and of the Association.
§ Sir H. Shawcross
I am informed by the British Travel and Holidays Association that they have investigated one incident, and the explanation made it clear that there had been no discrimination against coloured persons as such. The Association has always stressed to hotel and catering establishments the importance of a courteous welcome to all visitors, a precept which I strongly endorse.
