HC Deb 05 February 1953 vol 510 c235W
91. Mr. Brooke

asked the Minister of Education why boys and girls at independent schools in the London area are not included in the arrangements for enabling schoolchildren to watch the Coronation procession from the Victoria Embankment.

Miss Horsbrugh

The selection of children under these arrangements is a matter for the local education authorities in the area of Greater London. I did not consider it practicable to ask them to make special provision for independent schools out of the limited allocation of places available, in view of the great variety and different circumstances of the schools.
