§ 22. Mr. McENTEE
asked the Home Secretary whether there are any regulations of a statutory or other character which would preclude the members of the Metropolitan Police or other forces from establishing a form of mutual trading entirely independent of the police authorities and operated apart from police premises or control?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
Yes, Sir. I think this would come within the regulation which prohibits members of a police force carrying on any business for gain.
§ Mr. McENTEE
Assuming that the proposed trading was not for gain but was in the nature of a co-operative society among the policemen, would that come under the regulations?
