HC Deb 20 May 1952 vol 501 c37W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Works how many applications for licences to trade in Trafalgar Square he has received under the Trafalgar Square Act, 1844, and the Parks Regulation Acts, 1872 and 1926; how many of these are from disabled ex-Service men and physically disabled persons; and how many licences he intends to issue.

Mr. Eccles

Of the 415 applications I have received for licences to trade in Trafalgar Square, 81 are from disabled persons and 35 of these from disabled ex-Service men. I am still awaiting detailed information from 153 applicants. I will decide finally how many licences are to be issued when I have reviewed all the applications in detail, but the number will probable be six.
