Anti-semite M.p. Goes on the Carpet

May 28, 1933
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Vigorous action against Edward Doran, member of the House of Commons for North Tottenham, who has distinguished himself by his espousal of anti-Semitic measures and his support of the Hitler regime in Germany, was announced today.

Doran, a Conservative, has been invited by the Conservative party in his constituency to attend a special meeting where he will be asked to explain his anti-Jewish activities which, according to his own statement, include the formation of an organization similar to Hitler’s in this country. Representatives of the central organization of the Conservative party will attend the meeting.

The North Tottenham group announced today that at the next election Doran would be replaced by a Conservative loyal to the constitution which forbids persecution of any class of the populace.

Doran has in recent weeks been active in combatting anti-Hitler sentiment and has frequently taken the floor in Parliament to attempt justification of the Hitler regime. He recently invited a Hitler representative to address a meeting of Conservative members of the House.
