§ MR. SEAVERNS (Lambeth, Brixton)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department it his attention has been called to the fact that, under new regulations framed by the Commissioner of Police, members of the Metropolitan Police force have to perform point duty for eight consecutive hours on Sunday, without an interval for rest or refreshment; and will he arrange that an interval of at least half an hour for these purposes be allowed them.
§ MR. HERBERT SAMUEL
The alteration in the hours of duty which my hon. friend mentions affects a limited of stations and was made by the Commissioner for the convenience of the men. The Commissioner may be trusted to so arrange that the constables referred to have proper opportunities for taking necessary refreshment.
