HC Deb 05 October 1931 vol 257 c800

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he can give any further information regarding the conflict between police and people in Glasgow on the evening of the 1st October?

The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Major Sir Archibald Sinclair)

I am informed that, apart from the disturbances referred to in my reply to the question of the hon. Member for the Bridgeton Division of Glasgow (Mr. Maxton) on the 2nd instant, the only disturbance that occurred on the evening of the 1st instant took place in Garngad Road in the St. Rollox Division, where some of the crowd who had been concerned in the earlier disturbances in the centre of the city broke a number of windows and some looting took place. One arrest was made.


Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that it is due to the action of the Government in making cuts in unemployment benefit?
