HC Deb 30 October 1947 vol 443 c122W
142. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the public announcement that Sir Oswald Mosley will speak at an early date in Ridley Road, in the Central Hackney Division; and what steps he proposes to take to prevent this.

Mr. Ede

I have seen Press reports to this effect. I have no power to decide who shall or shall not be allowed to speak at a public meeting. It will be the duty of the police to preserve order and to maintain the peace.
