HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 c268W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Works to arrange to have suitable stands erected in Trafalgar Square for the purpose of enabling disabled ex-Naval men, and the children of officers and men who sacrificed their lives in the last war, to witness the Coronation procession from these stands.

Mr. Eccles

No. Arrangements for disabled ex-Service men and for children of those who fell in the last war are being made elsewhere on the route, and I do not consider that the general public should be deprived of the opportunity of standing in Trafalgar Square.
