§ 12. Captain BOURNE
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that on several occasions recently luggage has been stolen from motor cars standing in the London streets; and whether the Metropolitan police are taking steps to prevent the recurrence of this type of crime and to discover and arrest the perpetrators?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The Commissioner of Police informs me that there is no evidence of any recent increase in this class of crime in the Metropolitan Police Area. The police do of course take 2022 all possible steps to prevent this kind of crime, so far as they are able, and to trace the thieves when cases occur.
