HC Deb 28 June 1909 vol 7 cc35-6

I desire to put a question to the Home Secretary, of which I have given him private notice. May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether there has been any further rioting in Liverpool? According to the papers this morning the peace was not disturbed yesterday. May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether it is not a fact that the Catholic authorities and the Catholic people there, by curtailing the procession, by not exhibiting images, and by complying with the recommendations of the police in other ways, did their best to avoid provocation, and whether these riots were not provoked by an inflammatory placard and by the incursion of people as the result from other parts of the city?


I have to state, in reply to my hon. Friend, that I have no further information, and I imagine that there was no renewal of the rioting. So far as my information goes, the Roman Catholics behaved with moderation and restraint.
