HC Deb 13 November 1952 vol 507 c1092
3. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what arrangements he is making for the Bamangwato tribe of Bechuanaland to be present in this country for the Coronation.

Mr. J. Foster

The question of representation of the High Commission Territories at the Coronation is under consideration.

Mr. Hughes

Would the Minister give earnest and urgent consideration to this matter and an assurance that whoever is elected by the Bamangwato tribe will be allowed to attend the ceremony?

Mr. Foster

Having in mind the terms of the Question, I cannot hold out any hope that the whole of the tribe will be invited to the Coronation.

Mr. Anthony Greenwood

If any of them do come will they be allowed to go back again?
