§ 8. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what were the circumstances which made it necessary recently to place a police guard on the Coronation Stone at Kingston-upon-Thames.
§ Colonel Gomme-Duncan
In view of the fact that Ethelred the Unready was 1228 crowned on this stone can the right hon. Gentleman agree that the town council of Kingston has shown a very remarkable change as opposed to the very unhapply record of that Monarch?
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
Would the Secretary of State recall his previous profession and teach my hon. and gallant Friend some history?
