asked the Lord President of the Council whether he can now make a statement on the catering arrangements at the South Bank Exhibition.

There will be 13 catering establishments in the South Bank Exhibition, comprising restaurants, caf├ęs, buffets and bars. Concessions have been let to five catering firms who are now planning their operations in close association with the Festival Office. A description of these arrangements was published in the Press on 20th October. The catering facilities which are being provided separately by the L.C.C. in the Royal Festival Hall will also be available to visitors to the South Bank Exhibition.

To ensure a fair distribution of the crockery available for the catering, would the right hon. Gentleman give an assurance that the Dome of Discovery is not being reserved as a flying saucer by Lord Beaverbrook?
