§ MR. CONYBEARE (Cornwall, Camborne)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether there 1247 was in the Metropolitan Police an amount of discontent which threatened to result in a strike; whether this discontent was caused by the arbitrary conduct of Sir Charles Warren, and in consequence of the odious duty imposed upon the police of bâtoning unoffending citizens?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
The hon. Member has not given me Notice of this Question. I can only say I believe every suggestion of fact which it contains to be utterly unfounded.
