HC Deb 27 February 1918 vol 103 c1399W

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to a statement by M. Litvinoff that he proposes to defy the landlord's legal notice to quit his premises at 82, Victoria Street, given on account of the contravention of the terms of the lease, which provided that these premises should not be used for any political purpose; whether he is aware that M. Litvinoff has also stated that he intends to defy the police in this connection; and what action it is proposed the Home Office shall take?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative; to the second in the negative. I see no reason at present for any steps on the part of the Home Office or the police in this matter. The landlord will no doubt avail himself, if necessary, of his legal remedies.
