HC Deb 10 February 1972 vol 830 c415W
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.
