§ 54. Lieut.-Colonel Bromley-Davenport
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many policemen were sent on 3rd June to delete the words "Tinker's Palace" from a house in Beechcroft Road, Tooting; and what are the present instructions to the police with regard to the removal of slogans of this character from walls and buildings in the Metropolitan area.
§ Lieut. - Colonel Bromley - Davenport
Would the right hon. Gentleman use what influence he has to restrain Ministers of the Crown from making provocative and blasphemous statements, which are liable to lead to retaliation?
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that most objectionable Communist slogans have been painted on 1339 the walls of Bayswater Road facing Kensington Gardens, and that they have been there for some time?
§ Mr. Skeffington-Lodge
Would my right hon. Friend look into the possibility of the culprit in this case being a member of the Housewives' League?
§ Lieut.-Commander Braithwaite
Can the Minister confirm or deny the rumour that motorists passing this residence have developed the habit of giving two hoots?
