§ CAPTAIN NORTON
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he can state if it is in contemplation to include a parade of old soldiers in the Diamond Jubilee pageant of 22nd June, seeing that a parade of Crimean veterans took place on the occasion of Her Majesty's Jubilee in 1887, and was much appreciated by the public?
§ MR. BRODRICK
I can only reply, as on other recent occasions, that the suggestion will be considered.
§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Admiralty 924 whether he will consider the practicability of associating some representatives of men who served in the Navy during the Crimean War with the celebration of the sixtieth year of Her Majesty's reign?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. GOSCHEN,) St. George's, Hanover Square
The general arrangements for the celebration of the sixtieth year of Her Majesty's reign are not in my hands, and I am unable to answer the hon. Member's question beyond saying that if men who served in the Army during the Crimean War should take part, naturally the men from the Navy would also do so. [Cheers.]
