HC Deb 03 May 1937 vol 323 cc793-4
64. Mr. Whiteley (for Mr. Mathers)

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the disclosures in evidence given at the Seine assizes in the trial relating to the murder of Max Kassel, he will instruct the Metropolitan police to pay more attention to eradicating the criminal activities which are now prevalent in the district of Soho?

Mr. Lloyd

As the hon. Member will appreciate, the information given in evidence in this case, so far as it related to conditions in this country, resulted from inquiries undertaken by the Metropolitan police. They are anxious to take every possible step to check the evils which the hon. Member has in mind, and will continue to give vigilant attention to these matters.
