§ 35. Mr. REMNANT
asked if the members of the Metropolitan police force are allowed the same railway privileges as are given to men serving in the Navy and Army?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The Cheap Trains Act, 1883, applies to police in the same way as to soldiers and sailors. Metropolitan police officers travelling on official business are conveyed at three-fourths of the ordinary fare. When not on duty they receive no special privilege.
§ Mr. REMNANT
If these men are recalled for emergency duty while away on holidays, will any expense fall upon them for their journey in getting backwards and forwards?
