HC Deb 04 April 1895 vol 32 c1010

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this Bill be now read a second time."


asked that some explanation should be given of the provisions of the Bill.


said, this Bill was only intended to provide for the appointment, if necessary, of a substitute or deputy for the Receiver of the Metropolitan Police during the Receiver's temporary absence through illness or any other cause. At present there was no means of providing a deputy, and both receipts and expenditure on behalf of the Metropolitan Police Fund had to be authenticated by his signature. There was now no official qualified to sign for him.

Motion put, and agreed to.
