HC Deb 08 March 1911 vol 22 c1211

asked whether any information with regard to the conduct of police or others towards a deputation of women suffragists on 18th November last was communicated to the Home Office from Mr. Mansell-Moullin, Dr. Ede, Dr. Flora Murray, or Miss M. McGregor, soon after the event, or whether the first complaints of rough treatment which reached the Home Office were contained in the Memorandum submitted by Mr. H. N. Brailsford?


One of the persons named called at the Home Office and in reply to general complaints was told that if any specific charge were made it would be inquired into, but no further communication was received from her. A letter to a newspaper by another of these persons was sent to me; and some other vague and general complaints against the police reached me about the same time; but none of them were of such a character as to afford any ground for special inquiry. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I made to the hon. Member for Blackburn last Wednesday.
