HC Deb 20 April 1937 vol 322 c1563
8. Mr. Orr-Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has considered the criticisms to which his attention has been called which have been made at meetings of branches of the British Legion concerning the review of the British Legion in June; and whether he can make any statement about the arrangements for this review?

Mr. Cooper

Transport difficulties have necessitated a reconsideration of a proposal to hold this review at Sandown Park, and discussions are proceeding between the authorities concerned and the British Legion for a revision of the scheme. I hope to be in a position to make an announcement very shortly.

Mr. Orr-Ewing

Will the right hon. Gentleman make it quite clear, in order to avoid any further misunderstanding, that at no time either this year or last year was permission granted to hold such a review in Hyde Park?

Mr. Cooper

Permission has never been granted.
