§ 23. Captain PETER MACDONALD
asked the Home Secretary if he can now make any further statement as to what action, if any, he proposes to take with 1167 regard to the co-ordination and reduction in numbers of the provincial police forces?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
I am unable at this stage to add anything to the terms of the reply returned on the 5th May last to the question on this subject put by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Chelmsford (Sir V. Henderson).
§ Captain MACDONALD
Is the right hon. Gentleman taking any steps with this object in view; and, in view of the changes in the organisation of the Metropolitan Police Force, is there not a favourable opportunity of doing so at present?
