HC Deb 07 July 1887 vol 317 cc74-5
MR. W. L. BRIGHT (Stoke-upon-Trent)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, What steps the Government intend to take in reference to the grave charge made in this House against the Metropolitan Police Force by the hon. Member for Barrow (Mr. Caine)?


The hon. Member for Barrow will, I hope, furnish the Government with sufficient information to enable us to decide in what way the charge made in his speech can best be investigated. I may add that I have received from the Chief Commissioner, in the name of the Police Force, a request that a full investigation should be made; and, on receiving the information I have referred to, I will at once take the necessary steps for making it.
