HC Deb 28 October 1952 vol 505 c200W
99. Sir E. Keeling

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what changes are to be made in the route of the Lord Mayor's Show.

Sir H. Lucas-Tooth

The route has been shortened; at its start the procession round the City wards has been modified by the adoption of a regular route passing through Gresham Street, Loth-bury, Bartholomew's Lane, Threadneedle Street, Mansion House Crossing, Poultry, Cheapside, St. Paul's Churchyard East, St. Paul's Churchyard South, Ludgate Hill, Ludgate Circus, Fleet Street and the Strand; after leaving the Law Courts the procession will turn down Norfolk Street and return by the Embankment, thus avoiding the greater part of the Strand, Trafalgar Square and Northumberland Avenue.
