§ 5. Colonel DAY
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many small field-dressing outfits have been supplied to the mounted police in the Metropolitan police area for the purpose of first-aid; whether first-aid is also rendered where necessary to horses in the streets of London; what is the cost of these outfits; and on how many occasions they have been used to the last convenient date?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)
No field-dressing outfits have yet been supplied but 300 dressings have been ordered. It is proposed that mounted police shall render first-aid where necessary to horses in the streets if the driver consents. The cost is £12.
§ Colonel DAY
If these officers have not got first-aid certificates, will the right hon. Gentleman see that they have a course of training in first-aid before they attempt to use field dressings for the horses?
