HC Deb 02 May 1911 vol 25 c206

asked the Home Secretary whether the Commission set up to inquire into the statements of the London police in a recent murder trial was remunerated for its services; if so, will he say what was the amount of that remuneration and the other costs connected therewith; whether the Commission inquiring into the question of taxi-cabs will be similarly recompensed; and, if not, will he say why this distinction between the two is Made?


The hon. and learned Member for Kingston, who was good enough to hold the inquiry into statements of certain police witnesses at the trial of Stinie Morrison, has not received any remuneration for his valuable and laborious service to the public. The members of the Committee on London Taximeter Cabs are also giving their time and labour gratuitously. The other questions, therefore, do not arise.
