HC Deb 07 July 1902 vol 110 cc929-30
SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield Central)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the limited numbers for whom provision was made at the Royal Parades on Tuesday and Wednesday, the Commander-in-Chief will consider the possibility, by holding a review in Hyde Park on a Saturday afternoon, of giving an opportunity to people in London of seeing the representative contingents of Colonial and Indian troops and Reservists sent home for the Coronation.


I am afraid that arrangements cannot be made to carry out this suggestion. The great extent of ground to be kept would make the proposal very difficult to carry out.
