I beg to ask the Secretary of 911 State for the Home Department, what was the balance of moneys in hand shown in the Estimates on which the police precepts dated 1st July, 1903, were based; what rate in the upon the Metropolitan Police District is represented by such working balance; and what proportion such working balance bears to the whole estimated expenditure for the purposes of the police shown in the Estimate.
