§ 59. Mr. NAYLOR
asked the Home Secretary whether the cost of the large number of extra police engaged in regulating the traffic to and from racecourse meetings held outside the Metropolitan Police area is a charge upon the ratepayers of the Metropolis; and, if so, whether he will inquire as to the justication for imposing on London this abnormal expenditure, with a view to an early readjustment of charges being made?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The cost of any Metropolitan Police employed by or in connection with a racecourse outside the Metropolitan area does not fall on the Metropolitan Police Fund. All traffic within the area, wherever it may be going, has to be regulated by the police as part of their normal duty.
