§ MR. CLAUDE HAY
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what answer he proposes to make to the representations which have been addressed to him by the Borough Council of Shoreditch and others as to the lawlessness which is alleged to prevail in certain parts of London.
§ MR. GLADSTONE
The representation from the Shoreditch Borough Council to which the hon. Member refers only reached me to-day. It shall have my careful consideration. I may say that I have already had reason to think the condition of the district unsatisfactory, and it is receiving the attention of myself and of the Commissioner of Metropolitan Police.
