§ SIR RICHARD TEMPLE (Worcester, Evesham)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether arrangements under the cognizance of Government are being made for securing the safety of the large number of London school children, amounting to many thousands, whom it is proposed to assemble by voluntary effort in Hyde Park for the Jubilee Celebration on the 21st June; and, if so, what will be the nature of the arrangements?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
I am informed by the Chief Commissioner of Police that he has received a communication from the Secretary to the Children's Jubilee Committee, and that the necessary police arrangements will accordingly be made, due regard being given to the fact of the assembly of so many young persons. His Royal Highness the Ranger and the Chief Commissioner are both members of the Committee, and are assisting with their advice.
