§ 39. Mr. OUTHWAITE
asked the Home Secretary whether he has had any report from Southampton showing that, on the occasion when the two detectives were found hiding under the piano at a trade union meeting, they were protected from personal violence only by the timely action of the district secretary of the Amalgamated Society of Engineers; and whether he has taken any steps to show his appreciation of this man's action?
§ Sir G. CAVE
The answer to both parts of the question is in the negative. I have already denied the statement as to the place where the men were found.
