HC Deb 01 August 1952 vol 504 c224W
Major Beamish

asked the Minister of Works the approximate profit or loss on the Festival Gardens and the Fun Fair up to the last convenient date, showing each separately, if possible; what is the estimated profit or loss on both for this financial year; and what are the future plans for the Gardens and Fun Fair.

Mr. Eccles

The final financial outcome of Festival Gardens and the Fun Fair cannot be given until the season ends, but the Board of Festival Gardens Limited inform me that on present estimates it looks as if the enterprise might break about even for this year. It is too early to consider plans for next year when there are likely to be more visitors in London.
