HC Deb 14 May 1928 vol 217 c671
63. Mr. DAY

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it is proposed to hold an inquiry into the evidence that was given in a case heard at the Marlborough Street police court on Wednesday, 2nd May, wherein the magistrate ordered the police to pay the sum of 10 guineas costs?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)

I am inquiring into the matter myself, and am unable to make any statement at present.


Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether there is going to be a public inquiry into this matter, and, if there is going to be an inquiry later, whether the police officers concerned will be represented?


I cannot say more than I said on the last occasion. I am inquiring personally into the matter. I may decide that a prosecution is necessary, in which case, of course, the whole case will be inquired into, or I may decide that a public inquiry is necessary; but I have come to no conclusion.
