§ MR. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether a special inquiry is proceeding at Scotland Yard into the accounts of the Metropolitan Police, or into the conduct of the officials; and, if so, what is the nature of the inquiry?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
I have directed an inquiry into the Financial Regulations and the system of accounts of the Metropolitan Police, which is still proceeding. There has also been a special inquiry, now completed, into the conduct of a clerk in the Receiver's Department.
