HC Deb 03 May 1911 vol 25 cc418-9

asked the hon. Member for Southampton, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether it is intended to carry out the suggestions of the memorandum submitted to the Coronation Committee that representatives of commerce, labour, local government, literature, science, and other factors in the life of the nation should be invited to witness the Coronation procession as His Majesty's guests?

The TREASURER of the HOUSEHOLD (Mr. Dudley Ward)

This is not a matter for the First Commissioner. He understands, however, a reply to the memorandum was made by the Coronation Committee on Monday last.


Are we to understand that, whereas public money raised by the Estimates in this House is being spent, there is no Minister in this House or the other House responsible for this expenditure so that Members of this House are to get an opportunity of asking for information?
