This file contains documents relating to a meeting conducted by Mrs Emmeline Pankhurst in St Andrew's Halls, Glasgow on the 9th of March 1914. The meeting was charged by a force of Glasgow Police as there was a warrant from Scotland Yard for Mrs Pankhurst's arrest due to a previous charge. Allegations were made by various parties that Mrs Pankhurst and the other women present at the meeting were mistreated by the Glasgow Police and a Magistrates Committee considered evidence in respect to conducting an official enquiry.

The file also contains letters from Suffragette Janie Allan threatening militant action during a royal visit to Scotland and subsequent responses by the Police and the Scottish Office.
