asked the President of the Board of Trade what special allowance of coupons has been made for the forthcoming Royal Wedding; and whether coupons will be issued to enable Her Royal Highness the Princess Elizabeth to follow the traditional practice of accepting wedding gifts representative of British industry.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
Yes, Sir. One hundred coupons have been issued to Princess Elizabeth for her wedding, and the bridesmaids and pages have been allocated respectively 23 and 10 coupons each. As regards the second part of the Question, Her Royal Highness has asked that these gifts should be limited in size in keeping2W with the present difficult times and my Department has undertaken to issue the necessary coupons and licences to enable them to be accepted.
