HC Deb 03 May 1928 vol 216 c1914
9. Mr. PARKINSON (for Mr. W. THORNE)

asked the Home Secretary the amount of expenses incurred by Scotland Yard officers during the past 13 weeks in consequence of the intervention of that Department in the Harry Pace case, which is now being investigated at Coleford, Forest of Dean; and if he has any information as to when the case will be finally settled?


The assistance of the Metropolitan Police was sought by the Chief Constable. It would be inconvenient to require accounts of expenses to be made up and rendered during the investigation. It is impossible for anyone, even the coroner, to say how many more sitting will be necessary before the inquest can be concluded.
