HC Deb 04 July 1906 vol 160 cc32-3
MR. T. DAVIES (Fulham)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware of the inconvenience, trouble, and expense given the recipients of rewards for delivering up lost property found in public vehicles, etc., by compelling the finders to attend personally or by proxy, at New Scotland Yard, to receive the reward; and whether he will consider the possibility of sending the amount by postal order to the address of the finder, or that it might lie handed to him at any police station by request.


It is not the case that finders are compelled to attend personally or by proxy at New Scotland Yard to receive their rewards; these rewards are always sent by post when the finder so desires.
