HC Deb 26 February 1931 vol 248 cc2257-8
25. Mr. DAY

asked the Home Secretary whether shorthand notes are taken of all evidence given against police officers for the Metropolitan Police Disciplinary Board; how many appeals have been made to him on the decisions of this board for the 12 months ended to the last convenient date; and in how many cases have the appeals been dismissed?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. In 1930 there were three appeals to me by members of the Metropolitan Police who had been dismissed or required to resign. All the appeals were dismissed.
