asked the Prime Minister what arrangements are being made for the unveiling of the Memorial to His late Majesty King George V in October next.

His Majesty The King has graciously undertaken to unveil the memorial to His late Majesty King George V on 22nd October next. Detailed arrangements are being made by the National Memorial Committee with the assistance of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Works and will be announced later.

That will be a matter for consideration and, no doubt, will be considered by the National Memorial Committee.
