SEATS FOR CORONATION
PROCESSION IN LONDON.


.A number of seats in official stands
al.ng the route of the Coronation
P; cession in London in June, 1953,
have been placed at the disposal of
tlih Colonial Office for sale to Colonial
visitors and other persons closely con-
'nected with the Colonial territories.
About a quarter of the Heats will be
in covered stands, and the remai:;nder
will be in uncovered stands. The
cost of seats in covered stands will be
5 10. 0. per seat and in the uncov-
ered stands 3 10. 0. per seat.

The number of seats available is
strictly limited and it may not be
possible to allocate seats to all appli-
cants. Nor is it certain whether the
particular type of seat, covered or
uncovered, will be available.
Persons who wish to apply for seats
should submit applications to the
office of the Administrator or Com-
missioner of their Presidency not
later than the 30th September, 1952.
Applications should state the names
of the persons for whom seats are
desired, and whether seats in covered
or uncovered stands are preferred.
Applicants will be informed at the
earliest possible date whether seats
will be available for them, and suc-
cessful applicants will then be asked
to pay for the seats.

The following points should be
carefully noted by all applicants for
seats:-
(1) no applicant will be eligible
for more than two tickets;
applicants for more than
one ticket should give the
name of the person for
whom a second ticket is
desired;

(2) applicants who express pre-
ference for covered seats
should also state whether if
such seats are not available
they will be prepared to
take uncovered seats;

3) tickets will not be transfer-
able; they may be used
only by the persons in
whose names they have
been issued;


(4) the number of seats is limit-
ed, and it may not be possi-
ble to allocate seats to all
applicants. For this reason
applicants should not for-
ward any money until they
receive confirmation that
seats have been allotted to
them.
