HC Deb 01 June 1905 vol 147 c454

I beg to ask the Home Secretary if his attention has been drawn to the fact that hawkers are hawking in the streets, of London leaflets and cards deeply bordered in black and containing matter most offensive to Russians in our midst. Have the police any authority in the matter, and can action be taken to stop this gross breach of courtesy.


I had not heard of the matter until my hon. friend called my attention to it five minutes ago. Evidently it is an extremely regrettable matter, and I will see if any action can be taken
