§ MR. STANLEY LEIGHTON (Shropshire, Oswestry)
asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether in view of the importance of circulating correct information as to the County Constabulary and the principles on which the present establishments were founded, he will order the First Report of the Commissioners appointed to inquire into the best means of establishing an efficient Constabulary Force in the Counties of England and Wales, presented in 1839, to be reprinted?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. STUART-WORTLEY) (Sheffield, Hallam)
(who replied) said, the Report was of a voluminous character, and its production would be very costly. In view of the fact that all questions affecting the Constabulary in counties would be settled by the House before it could be published, he did not think any advantage would accrue, and he hoped his hon. Friend would not press for it.
