§ * EARL STANHOPE
I beg to ask Her Majesty's Government whether any facilities will be given to peers and peeresses and the officers of the House to witness Her Majesty's procession on June 22 next? I think it would be interesting to the House to have a, reply to this question.
§ THE LORD PRIVY SEAL (VISCOUNT CROSS)
I am happy to be able to answer that facilities will be given to peers and peeresses to witness Her Majesty's procession on June 22 next. The Government are not able at present to give the exact details of the arrangements, but no doubt they will include facilities for the officers of the House.
§ THE EARL OF FEVERSHAM
I would ask the noble Viscount whether there will be any opportunity given for peers and peeresses to be present at the ceremony at St. Paul's Cathedral? I believe that the practice hitherto has been, that both Houses of Parliament have been represented on such occasions.
§ VISCOUNT CROSS
I have not had notice of this question and I cannot say positively; but I believe I may state, from what I have learnt, that the space in the west front of St. Paul's is so small that accommodation for peers and peeresses could not be granted.
