HC Deb 11 April 1963 vol 675 cc195-6W
Mr. Roots

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what arrangements are being made by the Com- missioner of Police for the Metropolis to ensure that Members of Parliament, and others, shall have unimpeded access to the Palace of Westminster on Wednesday 24th April.

Mr. Brooke

I understand that the Royal Wedding ceremony is expected to finish at about 1 p.m. although some streets will need to be closed until about 2 p.m. I am informed by the Commissioner of Police that the police will be instructed to give all possible assistance to right hon. and hon. Members and to other persons proceeding to or from the Palace of Westminster. Windscreen labels to be displayed on cars, and giving advice on the method of approach to the Palace, will be available for the use of Members on application to the Deputy Serjeant at Arms. For persons proceeding on foot the subway from Westminster Underground Railway Station will be open at all times.
