HC Deb 21 May 1896 vol 41 cc79-80
MR. F. W. FISON (York, W.R., Doncaster)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether his attention has been called to the unsatisfactory accommodation provided for Members of this House at the Trooping of the Colour on Her Majesty's Birthday on the Horse Guards' Parade; and, whether better arrangements will be made next year?


I regret to say that we have no means of making better provision for Members of this House on the Queen's Birthday, except by erecting stands, for which no funds are voted. Nor is there any convenient space for such stands. As my hon. Friend is aware, a large number of tickets admitting within the line of sentries were made available for Members of the House.
