§ 45. Mr. Lewis
asked the Prime Minister on what grounds he deems to be confidential the opinions supplied to the Coronation Commission by Her Majesty's Government on the televising of the Coronation ceremony; and if, in view of the public interest shown in this matter, he will lift the ban of secrecy.
§ The Prime Minister (Mr. Winston Churchill)
On obvious grounds of common sense and convenient practice, it would not be fitting that opinions expressed to the Coronation Commission should be made public.
I am informed that a further statement has been issued by the Earl Marshal this afternoon.
