§ 96. Mr. Lipton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the international importance of the World Hunting Exhibition at Budapest in 1971 which justifies a contribution of up to £7,000 by Her Majesty's Government; and what advantages will accrue to British taxpayers from this expenditure.26W
§ Mr. Anthony Royle
The international importance of the World Hunting Exhibition is attested by the participation of 47 countries from all parts of the world including West Germany, France, the United States and most of our other Western European allies. It is to the advantage of the British taxpayer that our commercial prospects in Hungary should be maintained.
