Barbasch and Vogan showed that the Kazhdan-Lusztig cells of a finite Weyl group are compatible with parabolic subgroups. Their proof uses the known bridge between the theory of cells and the theory of primitive ideals. In this paper, an elementary, self-contained proof of this result is provided, which works for arbitrary Coxeter groups and Lusztig's general definition of cells (involving Iwahori-Hecke algebras with unequal parameters). The argument is based on a recent paper by Howlett and Yin.
