asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will make arrangements for local products from outlying areas to be exhibited at the main centres of the Festival of Britain.

I am not sure what arrangements the hon. Member has in mind—I pause a little because presently I shall be asked to speak up—but so far as Scottish outlying areas are concerned I would draw his attention to the Exhibition of Scottish Architecture and Traditional Crafts to be held in the Royal Scottish Museum, Edinburgh from July to September next year. I should welcome any help the hon. Member can give in securing increased support for this exhibition.

Will the Lord President look favourably on suggestions from myself and other sources for some exhibitions of typical crafts from areas which ordinary tourists will find difficulty in visiting?

If the hon. Member will let me have the suggestions, I will certainly consider them.
