MR. NIELD (Middlesex Ealing)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has given, or is aware of any special instructions having been issued, to the Metropolitan police, and, if so, by whom, to prevent any overflow meeting or demonstration in the neighbourhood of the Albert Hall on Friday evening next, on the occasion of the Church of England meeting called to protest against the Education Bill; if so, what are the nature of such special instructions, and why they should have been especially applied in regard to this meeting.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) No special instructions have been given to the police for dealing with an overflow meeting on Friday evening; and the police are not aware that there will be any organised demonstration outside the Albert Hall.
