§ MR. SETON-KARR (St. Helen's)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in reference to a recent statement made by him on the subject of county magistrates sending county police into municipal boroughs, Whether it is intended to insist on each municipal borough having a separate police force; and, if so, when such a change is likely to be brought about?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
I am 354 not aware to what statement of mine my hon. Friend refers; but it certainly is not my intention to insist on every municipal borough having a separate police force.
