HC Deb 15 November 1888 vol 330 cc1237-8
MR. R. CHAMBERLAIN (Islington, W.)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is a fact that the claims of 18 police constables at the Caledonian Road Station were disallowed by the Revising Barrister, on the ground that the beds were not separated by some kind of partition; and whether, if this be the case, the Home Secretary will cause such modifications to be made in the bed chambers as will prevent members of the Police Force from being in this way disqualified for the future?


, in reply, said, the fact was as stated. Since 1882 it had been the practice in building new police stations to give each police officer a separate bunk. He would consider whether arrangements could not be made to prevent the disqualification referred to.
