HC Deb 18 March 1897 vol 47 c941

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that for some months past persons representing railway companies, and other persons, are daily touting for cab-drivers for a particular cab company or companies in the offices or building of the Chief Commissioner of Police at the new Police Offices, New Scotland Yard, and if so, will he explain on what grounds this special favour is granted to some persons, whilst refused to others equally interested in the cab trade; and will he consider the advisability of putting a stop to the practice in question?


So far as I am aware, there is no such practice.
