§ Mr. Alex Carlile
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will call for a report from the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis on the seizure of a briefcase and bag containing personal articles, food, correspondence and his bed from Stuart Holmes outside the Mirror Group offices in Holborn at about 8 pm on Wednesday 28 January, during the course of his antismoking protest.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
I understand from the Commissioner of Police for the City of London that Mr. Holmes' possessions were not seized. Mr. Holmes refused to take them with him and so they were taken to Snow Hill police station for safe keeping where they are now awaiting his collection.
