Four reports have reached me from the Commissioner of Police during the period in question, of cases of assaults on Jews and attacks on Jewish property. No one, I am glad to say, has been seriously injured and the damage to property was of a minor description. It is, of course, not possible for the police to ensure that no instances of disorders will occur, but every effort is made to afford protection for peaceful citizens. In particular the Commissioner states that large reinforcements of police have been drafted into the area affected on every occasion when there appeared probability of disorder, and have been employed in policing meetings and processions and patrolling the area generally both in cars and on foot.
While thanking the right hon. Gentleman, has any action been taken regarding one particular building owned by members of the Jewish faith that was attacked and had its windows broken some two or three weeks ago?
