HC Deb 08 February 1965 vol 706 c34W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that those attending St. Paul's Cathedral on 30th January waited two hours or more for their cars after the service; and if he will make inquiries into the traffic arrangements made by the Metropolitan Police on that day.

Mr. George Thomas

I have obtained a report from the Commissioner of Police for the City of London. He informs me that on this occasion some 2,500 cars were involved. My right hon. Friends regrets the inconvenience which was caused to those attending the service but considerable delay was in the circumstances inevitable.
