HC Deb 23 July 1952 vol 504 cc41-2W
Mr. Janner

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what special arrangements it is proposed to make to ensure that those who are on leave in this country from the Colonies during the Coronation are accorded facilities for viewing the ceremonies; and whether the details of the arrangements will be made known in the Colonies well in advance.

Mr. Lyttelton

Accommodation on official stands along the route of the Coronation Procession has not yet been allocated, but a substantial number of seats will be reserved for the Colonial Territories. Colonial Governments will be told as soon as possible after decisions have been taken
