HC Deb 26 October 1976 vol 918 c191W
Mr. Wm Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what guidance has been given to local authorities and public bodies in Northern Ireland in regard to Her Majesty the Queen's visit to Northern Ireland during 1977.

Mr. Dunn

In his announcement on 18th December last about the celebrations of the Queen's Silver Jubilee the Prime Minister drew attention to the Queen's wish that as many people as possible should have the opportunity to celebrate her Jubilee in their own neighbourhood, and he expressed the Government's hope that local authorities would wish to mark the jubilee by organising special events.
