§ Mr. MANDER
asked the Lord President of the Council the conditions under which 852W the charter of the Royal Albert Hall is held and on which it can be withdrawn?
§ Mr. R. MacDONALD
The charter relating to the Royal Albert Hall was not granted subject to any condition such as the hon. Member appears to have in mind. In the absence of any express provision for its revocation, and no such provision exists in the case in question, a Royal Charter can only be revoked by Act of Parliament or in certain exceptional circumstances by the Courts, or with the consent of the grantees or their successors.
