HC Deb 07 August 1913 vol 56 cc1740-1

asked the Home Secretary whether he has received a memorandum from the Standing Joint Committee of Lindsey, Kesteven, and Holland, Lincolnshire, giving reasons against the Police (Weekly Rest-Day) Act being put into force; and whether he will consider such memorandum in the light of the fact that most of the counties have adopted the Act and the police in Lincoln are equally entitled to the benefit of the Act?


I have not received any such memorandum. Clearly the police in Lincolnshire have as much right to benefit by the Act as the police in any other county; but express provision is made in the Act by which its application may be modified in different districts in accordance with the different circumstances.
