HC Deb 12 May 1953 vol 515 cc70-1W
52. Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Works if he will give an assurance that Members of Parliament who have voluntarily relinquished their claim to seats in Westminster Abbey and have received alternative seats in New Palace Yard, will be able to witness the whole of the Coronation procession, to and from Westminster Abbey, in accordance with his recent arrangements.

Mr. Eccles

The whole of the Coronation procession from Westminster Abbey will pass in front of the covered seats provided free for Members not claiming seats in Westminster Abbey. The procession to the Abbey proceeds round the north and west sides of Parliament Square and the view of it from these seats will vary according to position.
