HC Deb 16 March 1944 vol 398 c423W
Mr. Liddall

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that naval ratings have recently been attacked by what are known as razor gangs in the Glasgow and Greenock areas; and what steps are being taken to make these ports safer for visiting service personnel.

Mr. Johnston

There has been no case of razor slashing in Greenock for a number of years, and only one case of assault against a naval rating in Glasgow during the past year in which a razor was used.
