HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 c240W
89. Miss Ward

asked the Minister of Education to give an assurance that, in view of the extended processional route for the purpose of enabling children to see the Queen on her way to her Coronation, schoolchildren from all over the country will be included on a fair basis of distribution of the seats available.

Miss Horsbrugh

A distribution of seats for schoolchildren is not contemplated, but standing room will be available for them on the Embankment. For practical reasons it has been found necessary to limit the standing room to schoolchildren living within about 15 miles of Charing Cross.
