HC Deb 10 February 1927 vol 202 cc263-4
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?


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.
