MR. E. H. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what powers under the Prevention of Crimes Acts the Chief Commissioner of Metropolitan Police conferred upon Inspector Drywood by his delegation, dated 13th November, 1891; and, under what statutory authority was this delegation made?


The delegation confers the power of: (1) receiving from licensees and persons under police supervision their monthly reports and notifications of place of residence, change of residence and intention to leave the district; (2) serving them with notices prescribing the time and place at which such reports and notifications are to be made. The delegation was dated 30th, not 13th, November, and was made under Section 20 of the Prevention of Crimes Act, 1871.
