Misuse Of The Metropolitan Police

EDM number 893 in 1999-00, proposed by George Galloway on 27/06/2000.

That this House expresses its concern at the use for political purposes of the Metropolitan Police, in particular the visit in March of this year by a Special Branch officer to the home of a British physician, Dr Misconi's name and address had been unwittingly supplied to the Foreign Office by the honourable Member for Glasgow, Kelvin as a would-be passenger on a proposed flight from London to Baghdad; notes the attendance by two Special Branch officers, taking notes and presumably names of those in attendance at the fringe meeting on the health situation in Iraq at the British Medical Association conference, addressed by the Member for Glasgow, Kelvin in the Abbey Community Centre in Great Smith Street on 26th June; and considers that whilst the use of the police for political purposes may be routine in some countries it should not become a feature of life in Great Britain.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
