HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 c61W
100. Mr. Reeves

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how far the opening of the Painted Hall, Royal Naval College, Greenwich, to the public was successful; what was the number of visitors in attendance during the present season; and whether it is his intention to continue the experiment.

Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

The Painted Hall and the Chapel at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, have for some years been open to the public during the week. The experiment which was made this summer of opening them on Sundays in addition has been successful, the number of visitors on the 17 Sundays concerned totalling over 23,000. The average weekday attendance is estimated to be about half the number attending on Sundays.

I shall give sympathetic consideration to the question of continuing this experiment next summer.
