HC Deb 20 July 1950 vol 477 cc185-6W
68. Mr. Bossom

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Communist meetings publicly held in the Metropolitan area this year were attended by the police; and, approximately, how many persons attended each meeting.

Mr. Ede

Some hundreds of Communist Party meetings have been attended by the police this year but I should require further notice to obtain the exact figure. Attendances have varied from nil to a few hundreds.
