§ 83. Major KINDERSLEY
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been railed to certain photographs of digging operations and other investigations by the police in connection with an alleged murder near Eastbourne which have appeared in the Press, and under whose authority such photographs were taken and published?
|CUSTOMS AND EXCISE REVENUE, 1923–24 AND 1924–25.|
|Head of Duty.||Approximate Receipts, 1923–24.||Estimate 1924–25 on pre-Budget basis.||Budget Estimate for 1924–25.|
No authority is required by the Press for taking and publishing photographs of current events.
§ Major KINDERSLEY
Does the hon. Member think that it is in the public interest that where the police have control of premises, as they presumably have, that they should allow the Press to come in and take these ghoulish pictures and publish them in the newspapers; and will he take steps to see that where the police have control this is not done?
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Is the hon. Member aware that there have been unseemly scenes at the place of this exhumation by the gathering of large crowds?
