§ 12. Colonel DAY
asked the Home Secretary by whose authority, and for what reason, the police prohibited on 30th May last a meeting at South Street, Walworth, under the auspices of the National League of the Blind?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I am informed that there was no indication that this was a meeting under the auspices of the National League of the Blind, although one blind man was present. A crowd of about 150 persons had assembled, causing great obstruction. Two more suitable sites were therefore indicated to the leaders if they wished to hold a meeting. The crowd, however, dispersed.
