HC Deb 09 April 1970 vol 799 c104W
46. Mr. Henig

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will set up a Working Party to examine the possibilities of the Royal Ballet acquiring as its permanent base the Drury Lane Theatre, thus leaving the Royal Opera as sole residents of the Royal Opera House.

Miss Jennie Lee

As far as I know, the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, is not at present on the market. The question of acquiring it for the Royal Ballet does not therefore arise.
