HC Deb 07 July 1919 vol 117 cc1426-7W
Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Home Secretary why the offices of the Birmingham fight-the-famine committee were raided by the police on 27th June last, in view of the fact that the committee are engaged in raising funds for the relief of the famine areas including areas inhabited by our Allies?


I am informed that upon the date mentioned the Birmingham police searched the premises of the author and printer of a leaflet issued in contravention of Defence of the Realm Regulation 270, and seized copies of the leaflet which were found at the printers.
