Police statement reporting on a complaint from a suffragette after a demonstration in November 1910 (MEPO 3/203)
Cannon Road Station
7th March 1911
Statement of George Bingham P.C.336A,
On 22nd November last, the occasion of the Suffragette raid on Downing Street. I was on duty in plain clothes acting as cyclist messenger and when not so engaged I was assisting the Inspectors in the Parade Room, and occasionally I was employed to show Police with prisoners up the staircase. In all cases the women went voluntarily & quietly, and I did not see one case of any PC having to handle his prisoner. They were all treated kindly & courteously.
I saw no case of a woman being urged forward and thumped as alleged in attached.
