§ Mr. GILBERT
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the number of recent robberies where the thieves have used motor cars in order to escape, he will say if any provision has been made that the metropolitan police force are provided either with motor cars or motor bicycles in order to enable them to pursue such persons; and, if not, will he ask his Department to forthwith consider the necessity of providing the police force with proper equipment to deal with such criminals?
§ Mr. SHORTT
A certain number of ears and motor-cycles with side-car attach-1402W ment are now in possession of the Metropolitan Police. The result has been extremely satisfactory, and it is hoped that in the future further use will be made of this means of quick transport.
