HC Deb 27 April 1871 vol 205 cc1779-80

I wish to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he is aware that this afternoon a number of gentlemen from Bath assembled in Palace Yard, singing patriotic songs and making a demonstration against the Licensing Bill of the right hon. Gentleman? I wish also to ask whether future demonstrations of such a nature will or will not be interfered with by the police?


I hope, Sir, the police will always prevent any noisy or improper demonstrations in Palace Yard, whether against the Licensing Bill or with any other object.
