HC Deb 13 March 1911 vol 22 c1877

I have to inform the House that His Majesty has been graciously pleased to signify his desire that this House shall be represented by Mr. Speaker at the solemnity of the Coronation to be held in Westminster Abbey on Thursday, 22nd day of June next. This intimation of His Majesty's pleasure is, I need scarcely say, another proof of the gracious consideration His Majesty shows for the convenience of his faithful Commons. The effect of this message is, that the House will dispense from going to the Abbey in its corporate capacity, and Members can go to Westminster in the manner most convenient to themselves.

Resolved, That this House, in accordance with His Majesty's Gracious intimation, doth authorise Mr. SPEAKER, as representing this House, to attend the solemnity of the Coronation, to be held in Westminster Abbey, on Thursday, the 22nd day of June next.—[Mr. Churchill.]
