§ MR. CLELAND (Glasgow, Bridgeton)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will consider the advisability of introducing into the Metropolitan Police Force the practice of granting good conduct stripes, after the fashion in vogue in the Army.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. GLADSTONE,) Leeds, W.
This is purely a disciplinary matter, and may be left to the Commissioner. I may add that the Commissioner is always ready to recognise special merit or special services among his men.
