Lieut. - Colonel SPENDER CLAY:

53.

asked the Prime Minister whether £20,000 is to be spent on a display of fireworks in Hyde Park during Peace celebrations on 19th July; and whether, in view of the need for national economy and the pressing demands for improved pensions and allowances in many branches of Government service, he will take steps to discourage such unproductive expenditure both by Government Departments and by local authorities?
