HC Deb 26 May 1938 vol 336 cc1379-80
41. Mr. James Hall

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that unnecessary violence was exercised by the police when called upon by the officials of the Unemployment Assistance Board in Limehouse to expel an orderly deputation from their offices in West India Dock Road on 12th May; and will he inquire into the circumstances of this case?

Sir S. Hoare

I have made inquiry and have been informed by the Commissioner of Police that the deputation left the building without incident on being requested to do so by the police. No person was removed from the building by force, and there was no disorder of any kind.
