HC Deb 09 November 1920 vol 134 cc1022-3W
Major GLYN

asked the Home Secretary whether at all hours on the morning of 11th November it will be possible for Members of Parliament to reach the House of Commons, or whether the Regulations on this matter will not be in force?


Instructions have been issued to police on duty on the 11th November to admit Members of Parliament, who announce themselves as such, to the enclosed area at Storey's Gate, King Charles Street Steps, or New Scotland Yard. The subway by Westminster Pier will also be available for Members.


asked the First Commissioner of Works for what special reasons the arrangements for the unveiling of the Cenotaph on Armistice Day were relegated by the appointed committee to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs?


The Secretary of State for Foreign affairs was asked by the Cabinet to assume charge of the ceremonies on 11th November because on three previous occasions, notably the Peace celebrations in August, 1919, he had presided over a Cabinet Committee for a similar purpose.
