HC Deb 25 November 1925 vol 188 cc1397-8W

asked the Home Secretary Whether he is aware of the mystery which surrounds the death of Miss Iris Watkins, Blackwood, Mon-mouth, and that the inhabitants are anxious that, if possible, the matter should be cleared up; and whether any assistance is being given to the local police in the matter by Scotland Yard?


I have seen newspaper reports of the inquest, and I am informed by the Commissioner of Police that no application for assistance has been received from the Chief Constable. In these cases assistance is not given by Scotland Yard, except upon request by the local police.
