HC Deb 20 February 1945 vol 408 cc616-7
39. Mr. Kirkwood

asked the Lord Advocate whether he is aware of the circumstances under which permission for the use of the Victoria Park, Yoker, for a demonstration in support of legitimate wages claims was first granted by the parks director and later refused by the magistrates; and whether it is intended to prosecute any of the 10,000 workers who attended the demonstration.

The Lord Advocate (Mr. J. S. C. Reid)

I am aware of the circumstances referred to in the first part of the Question. I have made inquiry but I have no evidence to show that any offence was committed in the course of the demonstration. Accordingly the question of prosecution does not arise.
