HC Deb 12 June 1913 vol 53 cc1790-1

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to authoritative letters from persons representing a mass meeting numbering over 3,000 persons regarding the alleged attack made by the Gorseinon, Glamorganshire, police upon peaceful inhabitants on the night of the 24th ultimo, at that place; whether his attention has been drawn to the nature or character of the language used by the police in the course of the discharge of their duties to, the inhabitants on that occasion; and whether, in view of the alleged serious injuries inflicted upon certain of the inhabitants by the police, he will cause are immediate inquiry to be made into the matter?


I received a letter and a resolution on this subject, which I have forwarded to the Standing Joint Committee of Glamorganshire, which is the authority having power to deal with any question as to the conduct of the county police. I have no knowledge of the facts, but I have asked the Standing Joint Committee to let me have a report in the matter.
