Council statement following the protest on 14 October along Whitehall:
"The council did not provide permission for a stage to be built next to the Cenotaph. Protests and marches are managed by the police.
"The council told protest organisers that the Metropolitan Police is the agency responsible for determining whether a structure is appropriate in a given location, and permissions lie with them."
"We do not support staging at the Cenotaph during future protests, however, that is a matter for the police."
