HC Deb 22 July 1929 vol 230 cc927-8W

asked the Home Secretary whether, seeing that a chief inspector has been dismissed from the Metropolitan Police recently in connection with breaches of discipline for which a station sergeant was sentenced to a term of imprisonment, he can state the reason for the differential treatment?


Both officers were dismissed. The circumstances, however, were not by any means the same, and that accounts for the fact that prosecution followed in the one case and not in the other.
