HC Deb 13 February 1890 vol 341 c203

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Homo Department whether his attention has been called to the report of a speech which was delivered at a meeting of London cabmen on the 6th instant by Mr. John Burns, a member of the London County Council, and which represents him to have said that— The London cabmen had real grievances against the police, who tyrannised against poor 'cabby,' if the latter could not 'tip' them enough; and whether there is any foundation for the charge of corruption which Mr. John Barns has thus brought against the Metropolitan Police?


I am informed that there is no foundation whatever for the allegation contained in the hon. Member's question.
