§ Sir WILLIAM BYLES
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?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
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.
