Motion text

That this House deplores the violent 'poll tax' demonstration that took place in London on 20th October; expresses concern that for the second time in 12 months demonstrations have been allowed to disrupt the peace in the capital city, leading to injury and arrest; is surprised and dismayed at reports that both the BBC and ITN have so far refused to release untransmitted film to the police; and calls upon all honourable and Right honourable Members of this House unreservedly to condemn the violence and all sections of the Press to co-operate fully and willingly with the authorities.
