HC Deb 11 March 1935 vol 299 cc27-8
52. Vice-Admiral TAYLOR (for Sir COOPER RAWSON)

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the resentment aroused among people of different religious denominations by the present exhibition in London of a statue which offends against public decency, he will, in exercise of his powers to prevent blasphemous or obscene exhibitions, instruct the police to remove or confiscate the statue in question; or what other steps he will take to guard against any breach of the peace which might be provoked by this spectacle?

Vice-Admiral TAYLOR
