HC Deb 04 May 1937 vol 323 c965
50. Mr. Thorne

asked the Lord President of the Council who gave the order that male spectators who have seats on the stands around the Queen Victoria Memorial will not be allowed to occupy them unless they wear frock or tail coats?

The Lord President of the Council (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)

No such instruction as that suggested has been given.

Mr. Thorne

Are we to understand then, that this statement in the papers was absolutely wrong?

Mr. MacDonald

I do not know about statements in the papers but there has been no such instruction.

Mr. R. C. Morrison

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that certain mayors of Metropolitan boroughs have been informed that they will be required to wear Court dress?
