HC Deb 13 May 1952 vol 500 cc108-9W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Works whether, in granting licences under the Trafalgar Square Act, 1844, and the Parks Regulation Acts, 1872 and 1926, for the purpose of carrying on business in photography and the sale of feedingstuffs for birds in Trafalgar Square, he will give preference to applicants who are disabled ex-Service men, and to those who are unable to carry on normal manual work due to physical disabilities.

Mr. Eccles

I intend as far as possible to see that these licences go to self-employed people who are dependent on this sort of activity for their livelihood. I will certainly look with special sympathy on applications from disabled persons.
