asked the Secretary of State for War what provision is being made for the entertainment of the officers and men of the British Army on the Rhine during 1949; how many shows are being planned; at what cost; and from what funds the necessary financial provision is being made.

Plans are being made for 24 professional theatrical shows to be provided for officers and men of the Army and the Royal Air Force in Germany during the 12 months ending 31st March, 1950. It is estimated that the total cost will be about £55,000. The cost is to be met partly from admission receipts, partly from the sale of surplus stage properties, and partly by contributions from non-public funds.
