§ Mr. COURTHOPE
asked the Home Secretary whether he has received a report of the behaviour of Dr. Grosvenor of the Home Office on the occasion of his visit to the offices of the British Motor Cab Company on 11th November, 1911; whether it was at first denied that Dr. Grosvenor was an official of the Home Office until inquiries had been made by the police as to his identity; and what action he proposes to take in this matter?
§ Mr. McKENNA
A complaint was received at the Home Office from this company as to the behaviour of Dr. Grosvenor when visiting their works. It was not clear from the letter to whom the complaint referred, but it appeared as a result of inquiry that the doctor in question was the local certifying surgeon under the Factory Act, who was visiting the works in pursuance of his duties under that Act. I obtained a report from the Factory Department with regard to the firm's complaint, and also a complaint received from Dr. Grosvenor as to his treatment by the firm, and I came to the conclusion that there were no grounds for my taking any action in the matter.
