Alert me about debates like this

Colonel NEWMAN:


asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that on the 30th ultimo a large body of men sought entrance to Durham Cathedral during divine service, and that, owing to their large numbers, they were unable to gain admittance, but went to St. James's Church, where they sang the Red Flag in spite of the remonstrance of the vicar; and what steps does he intend to take to prevent a further occurrence of such scenes?

Until I read the hon. and gallant Member's question, I had heard nothing of the incidents referred to. I am making inquiries.
