§ Mr. ANDERSON (by Private Notice)
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the police entered two shops of newsagents in Richmond, Yorks, and demanded the names arid addresses of all customers purchasing the "Herald" newspaper, and that this information was supplied to them by the newsagents; and will he state for what purpose this action was taken, and at whose instigation?
§ Sir G. CAVE
I have no knowledge of this matter, but I will make inquiries and inform the hon. Member of the result.
§ Mr. BILLING
Have the police any right to demand this information, and have shopkeepers and newsagents the right to refuse it?
