§ Mr. EDWARD STRAUSS
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that the apparatus for dealing with street accidents in the Metropolitan Police districts is inefficient; and whether he will consider the advisability of instituting for the Metropolitan Police district the system of motor ambulances 36 now working so satisfactorily in the City of London?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The Metropolitan Police have a very efficient system of hand ambulances; but, in view of the powers conferred by Parliament on the London County Council, I do not think the police could properly undertake the provision of motor ambulances. The Metropolitan-Ambulances Act, 1909, gave the London County Council power to establish a service of motor ambulances.
