HC Deb 01 August 1912 vol 41 c2271W

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that some of the assaults committed near Tower Hill, about which he is making inquiries of the City Police, were committed by members of the K Division of the Metropolitan Police; if he will inquire of the R Division as well as the City Police; and if he wishes to be supplied with the names of the witnesses, as well as the numbers of individual constables alleged to have committed the assaults?


The Commissioner of City Police reports that no such incident as was described in my hon. Friend's former question occurred at the place he mentioned, or, so far as he can ascertain, at any other place in the neighbourhood. No complaint has reached him of any person being assaulted on the day in question; but, if my hon. Friend will supply the particulars he now offers, further inquiry will, of course, be made.
