HC Deb 01 July 1889 vol 337 cc1155-6
MR. RANKIN (Herefordshire, Leominster)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, under the Local Government Act for England and Wales, Section 24 (i), County Councils are bound to repay to boroughs, having a separate police force, the half of the cost of the pay and clothing of such force as may have accrued from the 30th September, 1888, to the 31st March, 1889?


The answer is in the affirmative. I would refer my hon. Friend to the answers which I gave on this subject to my hon. Friends the Members for the Nuneaton Division of Warwickshire (Mr. Dugdale) and the Ramsey Division of Huntingdonshire (Mr. Fellowes), on the 2nd and 4th of April last.
