The Proclamation of the Dissolution of Parliament

with 2 comments


Had a bit of time this afternoon to dash up to the City to witness a bit of history – the formal declaration of the dissolution of parliament, outside the Royal Exchange at 3pm. IanVisits was also there and has much, much more and some great photos. (Which is handy, because my camera’s battery ran out. D’oh!)

  1. Does anyone know where on the Web one can find the “actual text* of the Royal Proclamation dissolving Parliament? I would like to read it to my History classes.
