HC Deb 06 August 1924 vol 176 cc2962-3W
Lieut.-Colonel FREMANTLE

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that at a meeting of the Communist party of Great Britain, and the Young Communist League, held in Trafalgar Square on Saturday, 26th July, an announcement was made that a collection would be taken for the purpose of obtaining funds for the purchase of arms by the party in question; that the collection duly took place and realised upwards of £10; what police action was taken in the matter; and what action he proposes to take, if any, to prevent the armament of the Communist party, and the further abuse in similar manner of Trafalgar Square?


There was a meeting of Communists in Trafalgar Square on Sunday, 27th July, not Saturday, 26th July, and a collection was invited, but I have no information that contributions were invited for the purpose stated in the question; nor do I know how much was collected.
