asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on whose authority the War Widows' Association of Great Britain was excluded from participation in the national ceremony of remembrance at the Cenotaph; and if he will ensure that steps are taken to ensure that this decision is reversed before 1979's ceremony of remembrance.
