Letter from WSC (Home Office) to Sir Edward Henry [Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police] saying that his wishes, conveyed to Sir Edward on Wednesday evening [16 November 1910] and repeated on Friday morning [18 November 1910], that the suffragettes were "not to be allowed to exhaust themselves but were to be arrested forthwith upon any defiance of the law" were ignored by the Police, resulting in "regrettable scenes" [on Friday 18 November 1910]. WSC asks that this policy be strictly observed in future. Manuscript in the hand of Edward Marsh, initialled "WSC" and annotated "copy". Filed after CHAR 12/3/44.
