§ 70. Sir D. Walker-Smith
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the violence and disorder in Whitehall on Saturday. 5th February, he will now institute a review of the operation of the law relating to public order.
§ Mr. Maudling
This serious incident was handled with commendable skill by the police. As much as I deplore the violence in which some of those taking part indulged I cannot see that this affair demonstrated any inadequacy in the law.
