HC Deb 25 January 1993 vol 217 c556W
24. Mr. Simon Coombs

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what plans he has to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the passing of the Theatres Act 1843.

Mr. Key

Although we have no particular plans to mark this anniversary, I am grateful to my hon. Friend for having drawn it to the attention of the House. As he will know, the Theatres Act greatly liberalised the provision of theatre in London in the last century.
