§ 11. Mr. JACOB
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that certain ex-service men, endeavouring to earn a living by selling bags of Indian corn to children for feeding pigeons in Parliament Square, have been persistently moved on by the police, and thus prevented from following their occupation; and whether he can see his way to issue instructions that these men should not be unnecessarily interfered with?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The police intervene only in so far as necessary to prevent obstruction and I regret I do not see my way to give any special instructions in the matter.
