HC Deb 26 May 1952 vol 501 cc97-8W
45. Mr. Hylton-Foster

asked the Prime Minister if Her Majesty's Government will give active support to the proposal to create a fund for the revival of the former Duke of York's Camps for boys as a memorial to His late Majesty King George VI.

The Prime Minister

The resolution passed at the Mansion House on 15th May provided that part of the National Memorial to King George the Sixth would take the form of a philanthropic scheme to benefit the entire country and be associated with the late King's name. The Executive Committee which has been formed will doubtless consider the proposal to which my hon. and learned Friend refers, together with the other suggestions which they are receiving.
