§ 39. Mr. T. SMITH (for Mr. THORNE)
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has received a report in connection with the riots that took place in Glasgow on the 26th of May; and if he can give any information as to the cause of the riots?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Sir Godfrey Collins)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I understand that in the case of the first disturbance the police were attacked while endeavouring to arrest a man participating in a street fight involving the members of a local gang; and that the second disturbance also followed the apprehension of a man by the police.
