§ 47. Mr. OSWALD LEWIS
asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been called to the criticisms in the report of the advisory committee on street collections for 1933 on the present methods of making house-to-house collections and collections in such places as shop arcades and railway stations for charitable purposes in the Metropolitan Police District; and will he, for the better protection of the public, seek powers to control such collections by regulation and, in particular, to make it obligatory for all persons taking part in such collections to have a permit from the police?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
I have seen the paragraph referred to in the report of the advisory committee on street collections and will consider whether there is any action which I can usefully take in the matter?
