§ 2. Sir ROBERT THOMAS
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention 1028 has been directed to the increase in knife and revolver affrays between gangs of aliens in Soho; that this menace is considered by residents to be greater now than it has been for many years; and what action he proposes to take?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I have no reason to believe that such affrays are on the increase—in fact, none has occurred for upwards of two years—nor that residents are menaced. The third part of the question does not therefore arise.
