HC Deb 27 May 1952 vol 501 cc141-2W
99. Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Works if he will now state how many licences he intends to issue, or has issued, for the purpose of trading in Trafalgar Square; and on what basis he is making these allocations of licences.

Mr. Eccles

I intend to issue licences to self-employed people capable of giving good service to the public but likely to find difficulty in making a living in another way, with a preference for disabled ex-Service men, and to restrict the number to six, four for photography and two for corn selling.
