HC Deb 04 November 1937 vol 328 c1105
42. Sir John Mellor

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the repeal of Section I of the Metropolitan Police Act, 1864, by Section 52 of the London County Council (General Powers) Act, 1936, he will take steps to protect the public from annoyance caused by street musicians and singers?

Sir S. Hoare

This is now a matter which falls to be dealt with by by-law to be made by the Metropolitan borough councils. I have received certain representations from the borough councils as to the form of the by-law (the drafting of which gives rise to some difficulty) and these are under consideration.

Mr. Davidson

Does that also apply to Italian organ grinders?
