HC Deb 21 October 1920 vol 133 cc1068-9
65. Brigadier-General WIGAN

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the article in the "Daily Herald" of the 19th October on the conduct of the police in the disturbance near Whitehall on the 18th; and whether he intends to take any action against the paper concerned?

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Is it in order to mention the name of a newspaper, as is done in this question?


I do not see any objection to doing so.


I have seen this article. It contains gross misrepresentations with regard to the action of the police, but it is not possible to prosecute a newspaper for mere misrepresentations, and I do not contemplate taking any action with regard to the article.


Is it a fact that over 3,000 pork pies were distributed to these men, and who paid for them?
