HC Deb 22 July 1878 vol 241 cc2089-90

Clause 44 (Duties and authorities of constables).

SIR HENRY SELWIN-IBBETSON moved, in page 22, line 23, after the word "each," to insert the words "police district or area."

Amendment agreed to.

SIR JAMES M'GAREL-HOGG moved, in page 22, line 22, to insert the words "subject to the local authority," after the word "shall."


said, he opposed the Amendment, on the ground that its practical effect would be to place the Metropolitan Police under the Metropolitan Board of Works. The Metropolitan Police were a distinct body, acting under the Secretary of State; and he was of opinion that no such authority as that which it was asked to confer on the Metropolitan Board of Works ought to be introduced in a Bill of this kind.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

SIR HENRY SELWIN-IBBETSON moved, in page 23, line 3, after "purpose," to leave out to end of paragraph, and insert— ''And all enactments relating to the release of persons or recognizances taken by an officer of police or a constable shall apply in the case of a person apprehended under this section.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.
