§ LORD R. CECIL (Marylebone, E.)
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General whether 311 his attention has been called to the language used by the hon. Member for South West Ham, to the effect that if those he was addressing wanted to rush anything, they should rush every bakers' shop they could see; and whether he intends to advise that any legal proceedings should be taken against the hon. Member in respect of his words.
§ THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir W. ROBSON,) South Shields
This matter appears to me at present to be one for the police, and I think the noble Lord will scarcely expect me to say what legal proceedings ought to be taken until my advice is asked.
§ MR. MOORE (Armagh, N.)
inquired whether it would be within the province of the Home Secretary to bring the matter before the right hon. and learned Gentleman.
§ LORD R. CECIL
asked whether the matter was one which was engaging the attention of the Government.
§ MR. CLYNES (Manchester, N.E.)
inquired whether the Attorney-General had any information relating to the numerous instances of incitement to crime on the part of the political associates of the noble Lord, and whether he had any information as to the noble Lord ever having repudiated these incitements.
