§ 13. Mr. R. ACLAND
asked the Home Secretary whether he intends to hold any inquiry into the disturbances which occurred in Thurloe Square on the 22nd March last?
§ Mr. ACLAND
Is the hon. Member aware that one of the real causes of public disturbance is a doubt as to the impartiality of the police? If I can give authoritative evidence that an inquiry is needed, will the Minister consider whether one should not be held, in order to establish the impartiality of the police?
Is the hon. Member satisfied from the evidence placed at his disposal that the police exercised no undue violence in dispersing the crowd in Thurloe Square or that they gave 221 reasonable notice to the crowd to disperse before charging them with batons?
