HC Deb 06 May 1912 vol 38 c36

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the Metropolitan Police on point duty on Sundays are kept at their posts without a break for eight hours; and, if so, will he arrange for an interval for food and rest?


The eight-hour tour of duty was instituted in the interests of the men, to afford them greater freedom on Sundays. Arrangements are made that permit of the men obtaining food while on duty.
