HC Deb 14 June 1973 vol 857 cc346-7W
40. Mr. Soref

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to protect the police in the performance of their duty from the increasing violence displayed by youthful elements of the coloured community.

Mr. R. Carr

All possible steps must be taken to protect the police against violence, but I have no evidence to suggest that they need to be specially protected from any particular section of the community.
