HC Deb 15 May 1919 vol 115 c1790W

asked the Secretary of State for War when it is intended that the great provincial centres shall have a victory march of the various branches of His Majesty's Army and Navy connected with the respective districts, on similar lines to the marches recently performed and those arranged for in London?

Captain GUEST

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to a question put by the right hon. Member for South Molton on the 15th April, to the effect that General Officers Commanding-in-Chief in the various Commands have been instructed to communicate with lords lieutenant, lord mayors, and other authorities with a view to ascertaining their wishes as regards the holding of triumphal processions in the big towns later on in the year, and seeing how the proposed arrangements can be co-ordinated. The General Officers Commanding will report the proposals to the War Office, indicating in what way the War Office can best co-operate.
