Questions on Anti-fascist Curbs Dodged in House of Commons

The Government declined today to answer questions in the House of Commons on measures it is reported planning to stop anti-Semitic terrorism.

Geoffrey Lloyd, Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin’s aide, declared, however, that police action has resulted in a definite reduction of the grosser forms of anti-Semitic activities in the East End, but that “the Fascists have not relaxed their efforts to arouse anti-Jewish feeling by innuendo and veiled threats.”

The political correspondent of the News-Chronicle reported today that the Cabinet, at a meeting yesterday, decided to ban the uniforms of Sir Oswald Mosley’s Blackshirts.

The ministers also decided to empower local authorities to prohibit political marches in certain areas, the paper said.
