§ Sir G. Fox
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to a speech, at Evesham, by the Reverend A. D. Belden, a member of the Peace Pledge Union, advocating peace with security now; and, as the aim of this meeting was to hamper Britain's war effort in every way, will he make arrangements to have gatherings of this kind carefully watched, with a view to taking action against the promoters?
§ Sir J. Anderson
I have called for a report on this meeting. My hon. Friend can be assured that the police do not hesitate to take action whenever an offence against the Defence Regulations appears to have been committed.
