HC Deb 04 November 1920 vol 134 cc601-2W

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that a load of stones appeared at Whitehall simultaneously with the arrival of the unemployed demonstration on 18th October; and can he say whether this load of stones was sent from East Ham on that day?


A motor lorry laden with large pieces of broken road concrete, which was proceeding south through Whitehall, was held up by a mob and stones were taken from this lorry and thrown at the police. No particulars with regard to the lorry were noted by the police, and I cannot say where it came from.
