HC Deb 24 July 1922 vol 157 c55W

asked the Home Secretary whether eight officers of the special branch are engaged full-time on watching ex-Inspector John Syme and his wife; what is the amount paid to these eight men in salaries and expenses; and what purpose is served by the expenditure of this money in this manner?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave to him on the 25th May last. Special police observation on Syme is necessary to prevent him committing a breach of the peace or some more serious offence.
