HC Deb 06 July 1911 vol 27 c1341

Can the Home Secretary say anything as to the condition of things in Manchester to-day, and will he be good enough to tell me by whose authority the military forces of the Crown have been sent there?


I have had a telephone message from the general who has assumed the direction of affairs there to say that the situation is hopeful to-day. I have no further information at all to give to the House, except that ample forces have been placed at the disposal of the authorities responsible for maintaining order.

Captain CRAIG

Will the right hon. Gentleman undertake not to go down himself?
