§ 56. Mr. Sparks
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what report he has received from the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police upon the disorders which arose at the Royal Albert Hall on the occasion of the recent meeting of the British Housewives' League.
§ Mr. Ede
I have received a report on this meeting, from which it appears that about half an hour after it started organised interruption of the speakers commenced. After this had been going on for some time, police, at the request of the organisers of the meeting, asked the interrupters to leave, and the majority did so. At a later stage an attempt by two members of the audience to gain access to the platform led to some disorder.
